I did a variation of this Cherry Blossom Cocktail Design * For Sponge years ago. The blog has been closed since then, I wanted to make sure the recipe is saved և submit it here. I have updated the specifications (My palate is drier) և added vermouth infusion with cherry blossoms.
Vanilla cherry blossom vermouth is a great addition to spring cocktails. It uses bianco vermouth, which is made from white grapes like dried vermouth, but has more sugar, so it is sweeter than sweet vermouth. I like to mix bianco vermouth into Martinis to give it a little more body (I highly recommend trying your Martini on this horse 🙂 so I always have on hand և I like to mix in tinctures. I also combined infused vermouth with gin, Luxardo cherry-orange bitters for a lower ABV martini version, which is similar to drinking under cherries.
Fresh cherry blossoms can be difficult, և I’m lucky that many ingredients are available in Northern California, so I have a list of substitutes for you that can be ordered online or at some grocery stores. Roses are the easiest substitute here, though sour canned sakura (aka cherry blossoms) It is a common way to include cherry blossoms in Japanese cuisine, so you can find them online this time of year. During the cherry blossom season in Japan, in Japanese communities in the United States and beyond, there are many celebrations, festivals to welcome the new season, the beauty of the blossoming cherry trees. They are hosting Hanami Gatherings և Excursions with friends և family to admire cherry blossoms for a short time (Hamam translates to “look” at “flowers”)
Not all cherries will bear fruit, but they still offer a beautiful display of fluffy pink և white blooms this time of year. If you can find a few in your area, they are a real sight to behold. The flowers can be used for teas, desserts and infusions, such as the vanilla cherry blossom vermouth in this cocktail. Happy cherry blossom season.
