After making roasted sour cherry ice cream with dark chocolate, I still had a few cherries left. Cocktails seemed like the way to go. Dessert, then drinks = my priorities :)
I hope you all had wonderful Fourth of July holidays! We were evacuated from the Esplanade before the fireworks started due to the thunder storms - sadness. So tonight we're heading to a neighboring town to give it another go! Fingers crossed for clear skies.
Sour Cherry Caipirinhas
You will need:
12 sour cherries, pitted (I used this amazing method)
2 half inch slices of lime, cut in half
4 teaspoons sugar
4 ounces cachaca
Muddle ten cherries, lime slices and sugar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the cachaca and fill with ice. Shake well and pour into two glasses (You can strain it is you want to remove the cherry pieces, but I like them in the glass). Add one of the reserved cherries to each glass. Cheers!
