Cherry Syrup / Cocktail
Cherry syrup is really simple to manufacture, and great in combination with plain or mineral water, or a cocktail with white wine or champagne.
- 700 g cherries (for syrup)
- 50 ml juice cherries or any other red fruit (for syrup)
- 130 g sugar (for syrup)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice or lemon (for syrup)
- 750 ml white wine (for cocktail)
- a few fresh mint leaves (for cocktail)
Mash the cherries in a blender together with the juice until you get a homogeneous mixture. Strain the mixture through fine strainer by pressing to extract as much juice as you can.
Pour the cherries in a saucepan and add the sugar, and then let it simmer until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat and let it boil with occasional stirring (if foam appears on the surface, remove it). Simmer about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half.
Allow to cool to room temperature. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Store the syrup in the refrigerator (can stand up to a month).
To make the cocktail, place 1/2 tablespoon of the syrup into a glass and fill it with chilled white wine. Garnish with a few fresh mint leaves or citronella.
