The Cherry Tart 75

Customize your Cherry Tart 75

This is such an easy recipe to mix up, but be picky about what you change, as there’s not a whole lot of room in a champagne flute to go totally nuts.

The volume of maraschino liqueur and simple syrup you add should equal the amount of lemon juice you use as a place to start.

If you can’t get enough of the cherry flavor, use more maraschino and less simple syrup.

You would like more tart? Add a bit more lemon juice, but know that you can easily make this gin recipe too tart.

When bubbles are your jam, and you simply can’t get enough, only add a smidge of gin and let your bubbles do the fizzing up. k

You can add even more cherry flavor by dropping your Luxardo cherry into your glass, which also adds some color to things. Use a lemon rind or twist if you need more of the citrus flavors to come through.

PS – it’s super easy to make your own Luxardo cherries, and they are totally worth it.

Take it slow on these – they are deliciously strong and pretty potent.
