Cherry Blossom Cocktail

Cherry Blossom Cocktail

The original 1930’s Cherry Blossom needed a bit of tweaking, but once it was upgraded the finished cocktail is to die for. If you’re a fan of Brandy Manhattans you might want to give this one a go 😉


  • 1 ounce Unflavored Brandy
  • 1 Jigger Cherry Brandy
  • 1/2 ounce Curacao or Triple Sec
  • 1/2 ounce Black Cherry Syrup
  • 1 dash of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Combine

    All the ingredients into a shaker and fill with ice. Stir until the outside of the shaker is cold and strain into your favorite vintage cocktail glass. Garnish with cherries and enjoy!
