The Cocktail Column: Cherry Bakewell

Cherry Bakewell

Cherry Bakewell

Several weeks ago I was dining in a place called Circo Lounge in Westbourne, whereupon my friend Ellie ordered this cocktail – the Cherry Bakewell. Who would have imagined that such a traditional dessert would also inspire a very delicious drink counterpart? As much as I love a Cherry Bakewell Tart, I’d happily settle for this cocktail instead.
