An English Rose is a delightful variation of the classic Martini. It’s sweeter, using apricot brandy, grenadine and lemon for flavor but it is still a great before dinner drink.

1 ounce dry vermouth
1 ounce apricot brandy
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 teaspoon grenadine
Maraschino cherry for garnish
- Place all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes.
