smashed cherry + whiskey cooler
Here’s a simple drink for your weekend pleasure. Fresh bing cherries add a sweet and tart flavor along with a lovely red hue to this boozy cocktail. After muddling them in a glass, simply add a splash of lemon juice to brighten the flavor, some simple syrup so you don’t pucker up too much, and a fair amount of whiskey. This isn’t a light cocktail, that whiskey definitely makes itself known, but some days call for a little more booziness.
I hope you have an excellent weekend!
Cheers! To cherries, cocktails and a lovely weekend!
