The Cherry Lemonade

  • 1 part cherry vodka
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1 part lemon juice

Kelli and I created this one on the fly- with only minutes to spare before a weekend escape. Sometimes spontaneity + the ingredients on hand = downright deliciousness. Wish we’d taken a picture of it from the train…maybe next time.

To create a sugar rim for your glass: pour just a little sugar in a saucer. Take your glass and rub the rim with a slice of lemon. Twist it in the sugar. Drop a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour all ingredients over the ice. Lid on. shake away. Pour into your sugar rimmed glass & enjoy.

Simple syrup really is that. Simple. Put a pot on the stove, heat 1 cup of water, dissolve 1 cup of sugar. Remove from heat. Chill. Can be stored in the frig for a couple of weeks.
