This Father’s Day, give dad the best of both worlds: his martini and his dessert. This recipe requires no dough rolling, no cherry pitting, and no baking. Just a few fabulous ingredients and a well chilled martini glass. Actually- make that a couple of cold martini glasses, as I’m sure pops will insist on not drinking alone.
Happy Father’s Day!
Cherry Pie Martini
2.5 ounces Distillery No. 209 Gin
½ cup DOLE dark sweet frozen cherries

1 ounce Torani vanilla syrup
Directions: Fill a martini shaker with the gin, cherry juice, and vanilla syrup. Add the frozen cherries as a replacement to ice cubes and shake until the ingredients are well mixed. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a few of the cherries from the shaker.
