Valentine's Night Cocktail

This cocktail caught my eye for its bright red coloring and this cool glass.  Then as I was reading that it is like a Sangria with cherries and gin I was in love for sure.  This drink would be great for anytime of year but would look lovely on Valentine's night whether for two or a group.  Enjoy!

Cherry Gin-gria



  • Ice cubes
  • 2 ounces cherry syrup(recommended: Giammona)
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 5 to 6 ounces club soda
  • 1 ounce red wine
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries


Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Pour in the cherry syrup and the gin; stir to mix together. Lighten the drink with a generous splash of soda. Float a layer of red wine on top by pouring it over the back of a wide, flat spoon. (Don't worry if it doesn't float; it tastes great either way.) Drop a few maraschino cherries and raspberries into the glass. Drink.
