Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bomb cocktail

The Cherry Bomb cocktail is an old-school drink that was popular among the sailors in the 1940s. The drink is made of rum, grenadine, lime juice and cherry syrup. This cocktail became famous after it was immortalized in “The Thin Man” which was a detective novel written by Dashiell Hammett.
