  • 2 ounces Cherry and Peach Infused Gin (recipe follows)
  • 2 ounces cashew fruit juice
  • 16 ounces Bell’s Pale Ale

Cherry and Peach Infused Gin

  • 1 pound fresh cherries, pitted and stemmed
  • 1 pound fresh peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 750 ml gin (I use Distiller’s Gin No. 11)




Combine the gin and cashew fruit juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice.

Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into tall glasses and top with pale ale.


Instructions for Infused Gin:

Combine all ingredients in a glass container or containers. Cover tightly and store in a dark place for 3 days. Strain out the peaches and cherries, returning the infused gin to the original bottle.
