Liqueur • Bitter
Ramazzotti & Black Cherry Soda

This crazy-easy cocktail tastes like Cherry Coke from an alternate dimension. Made simply with the Italian digestif Ramazzotti and black cherry soda, the drink is dark and bitter, with the complexities of a Manhattan. The two ingredients come together to blossom into flavors of sarsaparilla, kola nut and tart summer cherries, with a robust, sweet finish. As versatile as it is easy to make, it can be served as a refreshing aperitif or stomach-settling dessert drink.
