Description

Cherry Lime Vodka Cocktails are sweet and refreshing! Made with fresh cherries and lime juice this cocktail is light, fruity, and perfect for summer!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted cherries
  • 8 oz. vodka
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 1 can black cherry soda

Instructions

  1. Place the cherries, lime juice and vodka in a blender and blend on high until combined and smooth.
  2. Pour the blended drink through a strainer to get rid of any cherry pieces. Honestly, the cherry pieces aren’t that big so this step isn’t the most necessary.
  3. If you like your cocktails over ice, pour the cherry mixture into a cup over ice. If you prefer it chilled, shake it with ice for about 30 seconds and pour it directly into the glass.
  4. Top the cocktail with a splash of soda. 
  5. Garnish with a fresh cherry in a toothpick and enjoy!
