With spring in full swing and the temperatures rising, nothing beats a refreshing drink on a warm day. When I came across this Cherry Blossom recipe from Three Olives Vodka, I had to give it a try – and I was not disappointed!
Not only is the cherry-flavored vodka good on its own, the
combination of the fresh cherries and tangy lime juice enhances the vodka to
make a sweet and crisp cocktail. I’m not a huge fan of sugary drinks but this
mixture is a nice balance of sweet and sour. You can always add more or less
lime juice and sugar depending on your preference. Also, try doubling the
recipe and adding club soda or sparkling water to make a pitcher of spritzers
for a brunch or outdoor party.
Cherry Blossom Recipe:
2 Teaspoons of sugar
3 oz. Three-O Cherry vodka
1 cup of crushed ice
Cut lime into 3 wedges. Put cherries, lime and sugar into a large glass. Mash fruit and sugar together until juicy. Add vodka and ice. Cover and shake vigorously until combined and serve.
