A popular cocktail in 1920s Paris, this delicate concoction gets its soft pink color from the addition of raspberry syrup, and its floral notes from the use of vermouth and kirsch, a dry cherry brandy.
- 2 oz. French vermouth
- 1 oz. kirsch (cherry brandy)
- 1 tsp. raspberry syrup, such as Monin
- 1 maraschino cherry, to garnish
- Combine vermouth, kirsch, and syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; cover and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and add cherry.
