Spirit
Bourbon
Ingredients
2 oz. Maker's Mark Bourbon
¼ oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¼ oz. Cherry Heering Liqueur
¼ oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ oz. Guava nectar
¼ oz. Cherry juice (or grenadine)
2 "coins" (cut circles) of fresh ginger
Mint leaves and a pick of cherries (for garnish)
Directions
Ice down a martini glass. In a mixing tin, add ginger coins and cherry juice or grenadine. Muddle thoroughly and add ice. Add bourbon, elderflower liqueur and remaining juices. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Sink the cherry liqueur into the glass slowly to give the cocktail a transition in color from dark to light. Garnish with two fresh mint leaves on the rim of the glass and a pick of cherries along the top.
