Cherry Gin Rickey
Sip, sip, hooray! This refreshing gin cocktail is equal parts cool and tart and perfect for poolside or beachfront evenings. Making a syrup (great for a Shirley Temple, too!) and straining the cherries, allows for full extraction of cherry flavor and a clear, not cloudy, libation. The salt caught your eye? Don’t skip it! It helps to round out all the flavors nicely and make the cherry flavor pop. Lose the gin for a fun mocktail or kid-friendly refreshment. The recipe easily doubles or triples if you’re throwing a bash. Here’s an idea: double the cherry, double the fun and serve with these Cherry Bourbon Chicken Wings.
