Rainier Cherry Negroni

by James Stevenson

Rainier cherries are my favorite summer fruit and what could be better than to add them to a negroni. If rainier cherries are out of season or unavailable in your area you could use any kind of fresh cherries. I specifically liked using the rainier cherries for this cocktail because it adds a little sweetness and a fresh summer flavor to the classical negroni.
