“Cherry Lemon Rye Whiskey Sour”

Based on my Lemon Rye Whiskey Sour, my Cherry Lemon Rye Whiskey Sour has maraschino cherry juice and cherry bitters added. Someone once told to never throw away cherry juice once cherries are gone. One day while I was mixing cocktails for the website this thought came to me. Self, see what you have in the refrigerator. I just totally dislike wasting anything.

So, what would happen if I added cherry juice to this cocktail. Holy Moly, what a flavor! I am so glad I kept that juice. With another holiday weekend coming up with festivities of food and fun, how about a perfect cocktail to go along with it all. A fab cherry taste with that punch of lemon. You could even increase the ingredients and make in a pitcher so guests can serve themselves. Nothing like a good party cocktail. Go ahead shake, shake, shake and stir, stir, stir! You will make quite a few guests and yourself very happy indeed. Have a great weekend.
