Cherry bourbon fizz
Recipe Type: Cocktail
Prep Time: 
Total Time: 
Serves: 1
Bourbon and cherries love each other, and citrus juice and a bit of fizz make this more summery than its Manhattan kin.
  • 4 ripe, juicy cherries (Bings are great, but others work too)
  • 1-2 tsp. granulated sugar (can alter for sweetness)
  • 1½ ounces bourbon
  • ½ ounce lime or lemon juice
  • Splash of soda
  1. Muddle 3 of the cherries and the sugar in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
  2. Fill the shaker halfway with ice. Add the bourbon and lime juice, and shake.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass with a few cubes of ice. Add the splash of soda and stir gently. Drop in the last cherry as a garnish, and serve.
