I learned this from watching Twin Peaks
  1. Insert cherry stem into your mouth.
  2. Chew the stem to make it pliable. That is the big secret and the only way it will work.
  3. Contort your mouth and tongue, using small movements so as to avoid looking like a cow, until cherry stem is tied. Keep your mouth closed!
  4. Display tied stem sexily on your tongue.
  5. Demurely pull it out of your mouth and proudly set it on a cocktail napkin.
  6. Take a drink.
