Cherry Smash

  • SERVINGS: 1

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.

  1. 8 sour cherries, pitted
  2. Ice
  3. 2 ounces bourbon
  4. 3/4 ounce Cherry Heering
  5. Club soda
  1. In a rocks glass, gently muddle the cherries to release some of their juices. Fill the glass with ice, add the bourbon and Cherry Heering and stir well. Top with club soda, stir again and serve.
