(Just skip the gin!) Making syrup and straining the cherries allows for full extraction of cherry flavor and a clear, not cloudy, libation. Ingredients 1 cup pitted sour cherries ½ cup granulated sugar ½ cup water ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt ½ cup fresh lime juice (from 4 limes) ½ cup lemon-lime soft drink (such as Sprite) 4 ounces gin Lime slices, for garnish Directions Bring cherries, sugar, water, and salt to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl; discard solids. Stir together cherry syrup, lime juice, soft drink, and gin in a small pitcher. Pour evenly into 4 rocks glasses filled with crushed ice. Garnish with lime slices.
