As we all know incredibly well, I am the queen of cocktail lovers, nothing makes me happier than having a lovely well made drink in my hand, and something delicious in the other. When the sun is shining there’s only one place to be and that’s up on my roof top enjoying a drink or three while relaxing in the sun. Being a food blogger sometimes has its perks and last week my lovely friends over at Berentzen sent me over a bottle of their new wild cherry flavour for my drinking pleasure. I made two cocktails using my cherry liquor; the first was a cherry lemonade which is all kinds of summer and drinkable all day long, and the second a cherry twist on the French 75, a champagne cocktail that’s as classy as the girl who introduced me to it!
