Default cherry bomb

Careful,I bought a plant at a food store and when I got it home it was loaded with aphids on top.Look closely before buying to avoid crying and gnashing of teeth when you get home.
None of my sprays are effective against aphids so I had to decapitate the plant and leave it isolated outdoors.

The alcohol approach was interesting.
Where are ladybugs when you need them.
If I find one, I deliver it right to the infected plant.
Like having one of those meal services.

Default Aphid Eradication

Neem oil per instructions for a week every other day. Rinse plant on days you don't use the Neem oil. Apply morning or evening, not during mid day heat. Keep plant isolated in a partially shaded area.

This worked for me several years ago. I am a big fan of Neem oil for plant health.
