Move over tonic. Gin and cherries may be the perfect combination. But wearing cashmere with a sublime fur collar would complete the look of this fine cocktail.

  • 4 Pitted Bing cherries
  • 1 Star anise pod
  • 2 Lime wedges
  • 1 tsp Demerara sugar
  • 2.5 oz Gin
  • .5 oz Ruby port

Garnish: Cherries

Glass: Martini

In a shaker, muddle the cherries, anise, lime and sugar. Add the gin and port, and fill with ice. Shake well and double strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with cherries.
