Cherry-Lime Rickey

Course: Drinks
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh or frozen cherries pitted and roughly chopped
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces cherry infused simple syrup *see below*
  • chilled club soda
  • ice

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker or large glass, muddle together the fresh cherries and lime juice.
  • Next, fill 2 good sized tumbler glasses (or one very large glass, if a single serving) with ice, and place a small sieve on top.
  • Strain the lime & cherry mix into the glass, and discard the cherry remnants. (We tried keeping them, but they always plug up the straw, and make drinking a challenge.)
  • Now, add the cherry simple syrup and top with the club soda.
  • Stir gently, and garnish with a lime round or a cherry.
  • This drink benefits from resting for a few minutes before enjoying.
