Green Eyes Cocktail (with Cherries)

I know my photo here doesn’t really match the name of this drink 🙂 This is in fact the green eyes cocktail, which normally is a lovely pale green color… I had some ripe cherries from my sour cherry tree that I thought would go great with the flavor of this drink, and they have very red juice… so maybe it a red eyes cocktail? In any case, it was delicious.

This is a gin cocktail with lime juice and green chartreuse, and in this case cherries. It has a lovely fresh flavor and is pretty strong, which I love. I think it would be tasty without the cherries too.
