We’re blending cherry and raspberry into one smooth beverage with this potent potable that’s based off of one of France’s most famous cocktails: The Rose. In our version, we’ve made a raspberry shrub to complement the cherry liqueur, creating a rich mix of bright fruit flavor that gets mellowed out with a dash of vermouth. For sweet sippers, we like soft, creamy cheeses that have a light, buttery profile.
