cherry amaretto

In honor of the Sakura (Cherry Blossom season), allow me to bring you a cherry themed cocktail. If you have not gotten out to see the beautiful blossoms, check out my post here.

For anyone who knows me, my all-time favorite drink is the Amaretto sour. So, when Pinterest gave me these two perfect finds at the top of my search, I knew it was kismet. 

Thank you, Cooking with Mamma C and Recipe Fiction, for leading me to my bartending attempts!

One of the recipes called for making your own sweet and sour mix and the other called for fresh cherries. Please, if you are able try out each recipe to potentially experience these sites drinks to the fullest. With that being said, the astronomical cost of fresh fruit in Japan can be gut wrenching. Also, I am lazy and not always the best at following instructions. So, my recipe is a sweet combination with slight changes of the two above. 

Admittedly, I was a bit of a child and made a mess while mixing and mashing, ensure you create this with a towel handy in case you are like me. Let me know if you enjoyed it or if you have an idea of what I should try making next week.
