The Cherry Tea

  • Preparation 5 MIN

“Here’s a cocktail to cocoon with on chilly autumn nights. I started with Earl Grey infused in a simple syrup made with seasonal ground cherries for good measure. In terms of spirits, rum and vermouth are an underrated match and a lot of home bars have them handy. The ground cherries blend well with the rum’s vanilla notes, while the orange garnish pairs nicely with the bergamot-flavoured tea. Put it alltogether and you have a balanced cocktail for fall.”— Nicolas Cadrin, recipe tester



  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the ice cubes, dark rum, sweet vermouth, lemon juice and Earl Grey and ground cherry syrup. Shake vigorously.
  2. Strain into a highball glass. Add ice cubes. Garnish with a slice of orange and a few ground cherries. Top up with tonic water.
