It’s cocktail week on the blog!
What does that mean? It means for the rest of week, I’m sharing cocktail recipes. Nothing else. Just cocktails. Hooray!
First up: Bourbon Cherry Coke. Doesn’t that sound delicious? Trust me, it is. I’ll admit, I indulge in a Coca-Cola or two every now and then. I’m trying to not drink it and I think I’ve done a good job of staying away but once in a blue moon, the craving will sneak back in and I’ll fall victim to it and what’s better than a Coca-Cola with a little added flavor? I love cherry Coke; it’s definitely one of my favorite indulgences. Even though cherry Coke is delicious by itself, a fresh cherry Coke (with bourbon) is 10 times better. I got the idea from Heather Christo and I was so into it when I first saw this on Pinterest. Genius!
So all you’ll need is:
Muddle the cherries with bourbon and sugar. Let the cherries become pulpy. I allowed my cherry/bourbon mixture to sit in the fridge overnight; not necessary but the flavors really came together by doing it this way.
Pour the cherry mixture in a glass filled with ice and top with Coca-Cola.
Sometimes I like to add some fresh lime juice to my Cokes or cherry Coke. Next time I make this, I’ll definitely add some fresh lime juice just to give it a little bite.
