The Native Magazine Cocktail of the Month is one of my favorite regular gigs that I get to photograph. Native is always sending me to cool bars and restaurants to shoot these cocktails. I get to meet some pretty cool people along the way and take some pretty awesome pictures. So lets dive into this cocktail. This is the Cherries Etc. which was made by and styled by Nick Dolan the Head Bartender of The Fox Bar and Cocktail Club. It features Lustau Brandy, Cappelletti red bitters, lemon stock, Maurin Quina, absinthe, Scrappy's Chocolate Bitters, and 3 fresh Cherries. To see the recipe in full be sure to pick up the magazine!

Check out this behind the scenes video to see how I created a beautiful cocktail image for an editorial shoot.
