Cherry Amaretto Sour

As you probably already know Halloween is our favorite time of year!  We really love any excuse to throw ourselves fully into any festivities and this year was no different!
The shop was filled with gory treats and pumpkin in just about everything. Once the week was over and all the hard work was done it was our turn to get out there and celebrate. We donned our best costumes and had some suitably bloody looking cocktails before heading on out to Panic Room, the annual Halloween party at The Baltic.
As we slipped into our costumes we indulged in more than a few of these delicious cocktails, we thought it selfish to keep such a delightful concoction to ourselves so here you go.  You're welcome ;)

Cherry Amaretto Sour
 (Makes 2)

You will need:
10 pitted cherries
The juice of 3 lemons
2 tbsp brown sugar
100ml Amaretto
25ml Bourbon (we love Bulleit Bourbon)

Put the cherries in the cocktail shaker along with the sugar and crush until the cherries are juicy and the sugar has dissolved.

Add the lemon juice, spirits and top the shaker up with ice. Clamp on the lid and shake shake shake until the shaker is too cold to hold.

Pour through the strainer into two glasses filled with ice and extra cherries. Top with lemonade to taste....and enjoy!
