This is a modern adaptation of Charles H Baker's Rosy Dawn Cocktail, contrasting the sweetness of the liqueurs with the sharpness of fresh Lime rather than syrupy Lime Cordial. Lots of cherry flavours and lots of depth from a surprisingly well balanced fruit Martini.
The cherry garnish shows through the condensation covered glass of the Rosy Dawn Cocktail.
Fill a Martini glass with ice and water to chill it while mixing the cocktail.
Add lots of ice to the mixing tin.
Shake the drink well until condensation forms on the outside of the mixing tin.
Discard the ice and water in the glass.
Strain the contents of the mixing tin into the glass.
Taste the cocktail and if necessary adjust the balance with a touch of extra sugar or citrus juice.
Garnish the cocktail with a cherry.
