A refreshing sweet and sour drink with a slight fizz and a lovely mint flavor! Great for children and grownups with a gorgeous deep red color and packed with freshly squeezed lemon juice, ripe cherries and garden grown mint.

*Also- would be double trouble delicious in an “adult” version with a few glug, glugs of cold vodka!

    Do you use sweet or sour cherry’s?

    • I used bing, which are sweeter, but if you use sour, just adjust flavor with the simple syrup.
