I played around with the sour cherry cocktail a bit. Here's my version:
Sour Cherry Limonade Cocktail
- Using a shot glass to measure, combine 3 parts sour cherries with 1 teaspoon of sugar & the juice of one lime in a cocktail shaker. Muddle until the cherries are mushy & juicy.
- Add three parts vodka, a splash of Cointreau, and a few ice cubes. Shake.
- Strain the mixture into two martini glasses, filling about 3/4 of the way full. (I placed a small strainer over each glass to ensure that no bits of cherries were left floating around.)
- Top off each glass with some sparkling French limonade. (If you don't have this, get some! Or just use a sweeter sparkling wine.)
