Why call it the Chandler? Because it is a cherry drink. Like Chandler Bing from Friends. Chandler Bing. Bing Cherries. Ok. The name might be a stretch. But it is my drink, and you are stuck with it. Although you can happily rename it and I will never be the wiser.
- 1 part cherry vodka
- ½ part grenadine
- 1 part sweet & sour syrup
- 3/4 part amaretto
- soda water
You know the drill: drop a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour all ingredients excluding the soda water over the ice. Lid on. shake away. Pour into your glass. Add as much (or little) fizz as you’d like.
A couple of mixing notes:
Sweet & sour syrup. Put a pot on the stove, heat 1 cup of water, dissolve 1 cup of sugar. Add ½ cup of lemon juice, ½ cup of lime juice. Remove from heat. Chill. Can be stored in the frig for a couple of weeks.
The ‘parts’ I refer to below really is up to you and your measuring device. A traditional jigger has two sides, one measures 1 oz., the other 1.5 oz. It all depends on how big a drink you want to make…
