Say ‘hello’ to Summer with a delicious cherry flavored cocktail.

It’s time to mix up a tasty beverage that can take you from Summer parties to holiday celebrations. This pretty red drink combines the flavors of cherry soda and Amaretto for a delicious blend that complements any 4th of July celebration or Memorial Day party.  The red color also lends itself to lots of occasions where you want to serve a signature drink like this red and white cookout, Valentine’s day, or Christmas.

HOSTESS TIP: Place a fruit basket or bowl of fresh cherries for garnish and let guests help themselves. To make it even more festive, plan ahead and freeze ice cubes in different shapes using silicone ice trays, or freeze cherry flavored juice inside the trays so it adds extra cherry flavor as it melts.

This cherry amaretto cocktail is slightly sweet with layers of flavor. It makes a nice welcoming aperitif or a relaxing after dinner drink served with a light treat like biscotti. Get the recipe below.
