📋What you will need

  • Vanilla Vodka – don’t skimp out, it is the primary component in this cocktail!

  • A maraschino cherry syrup and a few cherries to garnish your drink.

🍸How to make a Cherry Cheesecake Martini

I got the idea from UV Vodka, but their version is made with cranberry juice and grenadine? That didn’t make any sense to me, so I went with 1 part UV Vanilla Vodka, 2 parts cherry juice, and a splash of maraschino cherry syrup.
