Spring Cleaning

cherry blossoms! this drink turns a wonderful hue/shade/refraction of pink.....
1 12 oz Gin, Catoctin Creek
1 12 oz Pisco, Macchu pisco
4   Cherry
3 ds Bitters
3 cube Sugar
Shake gin, pisco, bitters on ice, strain in vessel of choice. Drop sugar cubes in and merely crush. Add cherries and give it all a couple brisk stirs.
I used Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Cherries which are cleaner than Luxardos and a good fit for this clear drink, some fresh cherries pitted are a good alternative. The pisco is pretty hard to mix generally but the Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin has a distinct flavor which works well. And finally, the crushed sugar cubes swirled with the cherries is a unique presentation and infusion of sweetness.

Curated this - changed 45 cl to 45 ml, unless 15 ounces of pisco is appropriate.
