Cherry martini

My cousin was visiting for a catch up so I decided to make her something sweet and dark. I saw fresh cherries for sale, incidentally from the same shire that she comes from, so I bought them and went from there. So here is the result, the dark cherry martini.

3 parts gin or vodka
1-2 parts sweet vermouth (to taste)
2 parts cherry syrup (taken from a tin of dark cherries)
Dash of cane sugar dark cherry fizzy drink (totally optional, I only bought it out of interest)
Some cherries from the tin to garnish

I also served it with fresh, juicy dark cherries.

Sweet but tasty.
