Cherries and brandy are natural companions for classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned, but here a little Dubonnet rouge lends a touch of spice.

What to buy: Dubonnet blanc and rouge are wine-based liqueurs flavored with spices. The dark red (rouge) version is sweet and rather rich; it can be found at most high-end liquor stores.

This recipe was featured as part of our Summer Fruit Cocktails photo gallery.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the cherries and sugar in a cocktail shaker and muddle until the cherries are broken up but not completely pulverized.
  2. 2Fill the shaker halfway with ice, then add the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and serve.
