Jim German is a master of classic cocktails, but he also loves to make his own seasonal creations. In the summer, he juices bing cherries from the orchard owned by the famous Cayuse winery, then blends it with gin, bitters and a touch of sparkling wine. When cherries aren't in season, he substitutes good-quality bottled juice.  Cocktail Tips from F&W Editors
