Cherry Smash

This drink tastes like cherry soda mixed with whiskey, with a bonus prize (muddled cherries) at the bottom of the glass. If you don't have Cherry Heering (a Danish cherry liqueur), use maraschino liqueur or, better yet, the juice left over from homemade maraschino cherries, which are much better than the too-sweet dyed-red variety at the supermarket.
