4/5

The Cherry Blossom cocktail is a delightful visual and taste spectacle, elegantly balancing the robust, fruity punch of cherry brandy with the crisp zest of lemon juice, all smoothed over by the velvety caress of Triple Sec. The dash of sugar skillfully bridges these vibrant flavors, creating a harmonious blend that’s as pleasing to the palate as it is to the eye; a true toast to spring's ephemeral beauty.
