The Cherry Blossom
With spring in full swing and the temperatures rising,nothing beats a refreshing drink on a warm day. When I came across this CherryBlossom recipe from Three Olives Vodka, I had to give it a try – and I was notdisappointed!
Not only is the cherry-flavored vodka good on its own, thecombination of the fresh cherries and tangy lime juice enhances the vodka tomake a sweet and crisp cocktail. I’m not a huge fan of sugary drinks but thismixture is a nice balance of sweet and sour. You can always add more or lesslime juice and sugar depending on your preference. Also, try doubling therecipe and adding club soda or sparkling water to make a pitcher of spritzersfor a brunch or outdoor party.
