Summer Nights: Cherry Rum Cooler
 
Now, for those scorching summer days, you’ll want something cool. How about a Cherry Rum Cooler? Take 30 ml of Captain Morgan Dark Rum, add 15 ml of that cherry syrup, and add a splash of lemonade. Pour over ice and top with a dash of Smirnoff Orange for that citrus kick. It’s like a sunset beach party, minus the sand.
 
Autumn Vibes: Smoky Cherry Whisky
 
When the leaves start falling, it’s time for something a bit cosier. Mix up a Smoky Cherry Whiskey. Grab 45 ml of Johnnie Walker Black Label, stir in 15 ml of cherry syrup, and add a splash of ginger ale for a bit of spice. It’s smoky, it’s sweet, and it has just the right amount of kick.
 
Winter Warmer: Cherry Spiced Toddy
 
Cold winter nights call for a warm drink in a mug. Try this Cherry Spiced Toddy. Heat up some water and add 30 ml of Signature Rare Aged Whisky and 15 ml of cherry syrup. Throw in a cinnamon stick and a slice of orange. It’s warm, comforting, and perfect for those long winter nights.
 
All-Season Star: Cherry Twist Negroni
 
For something that’s good any time of year, you can’t go wrong with a Cherry Twist Negroni. Equal parts—or 20 ml—Tanqueray Gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, then add a splash of cherry syrup. Stir over ice, garnish with an orange slice, and you’ve got a classic with a twist.

Cherry Fizz Mocktail
 
Grab your shaker and pour in about 30 ml of your homemade cherry syrup. Add the juice of half a lemon for that zesty tang. Throw in a handful of ice and give it a good shake.

So there you have it—cherry syrup isn’t just for topping desserts. It’s a versatile, all-star player that can take your cocktails from good to ‘where have you been all my life?’ So next time you’re mixing drinks, reach for that cherry syrup and get ready to impress.
