41 Days of Drinks (day 2)

This is the latest entry in a daily feature that will run through New Year's Eve. To provide it, I combed through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc.  -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned. 

BLACK CHERRY MULE

Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? Something refreshing, but with a bit of a kick? Then you'll probably enjoy this cocktail if you don't mind doing a little shopping around to find the necessary fruit.

Ingredients:

2 ounces Belvedere vodka or your favorite brand
Ginger beer
6 fresh cherries 
Dash of simple syrup 
Dash of fresh lime juice 
Dash of Peychaud bitters

Muddle all ingredients thoroughly. Then, shake and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with a float of ginger beer and garnish with a cherry. If you want to be very seasonable, use bright green or bright red maraschino cherries for the garnish.
