Cherry Flavored Drinks & Cocktails & Smoothies– a collection of drinks to celebrate the beginning of summer.
Summer is here, and cherries are in season. This round-up is all about honoring cherries in a glass.
You will find something for everyone, from drinks to cocktails to long drinks and smoothies and the cherries are the star of every recipe in this post.
As we usually serve cherries as a pretty garnish on top of the glass, these cherry drink recipes make the fruit instead of an integral part of the beverage with each sip.
Sometimes cherries can be just as tart as they are sweet, but the fruit’s flavor is versatile enough to be part of everything from smoothies to adult beverages and strong enough to hold its own alongside other fruit flavors.
When it comes to cherry-flavored drinks, the fresh summery flavor of bright red cherries is something that many people wish was around all year long. I hope you find something to enjoy!
Using simple ingredients, my Cherry Sangria recipe is light and refreshing. The flavors come together nicely. I love that it is inexpensive to make, and I can make large batches or smaller ones. This will easily become your go-to cocktail for getting together with your friends.
Chocolate-covered cherries are one of my very favorite classic Valentine treats. So why not enjoy their classic flavors in a scrumptious cocktail? That's right! ~ Chocolate Covered Cherry Martinis ... a perfect way to get your chocolate-covered cherry fix, and just perfect for sharing.
For a colorful result, make sure you use a cherry liqueur eau de vie (which is normally red) and not kirschwasser, which is clear. The amount of ice cream and Champagne will depend on your glasses' size and volume, so use the amounts listed as a guideline, scaling up or down as needed. Chill the liqueur and Champagne thoroughly beforehand, so the ice cream doesn't melt too quickly.
Craving a margarita right about now? Me too! Do it upright with these Cherry Margaritas full of fresh lime flavor and are made easily with frozen cherries. Big batch Cherry Margaritas are perfect for spring and summer parties!
Thank you to all my fellow bloggers who participated in this round-up!
I hope everyone finds a recipe to try. Personally, cherries are one of my favorite fruits out there and not only for their incredible health benefits but also for the delicious taste and versatility.
Cherries are good for you in any form or shape, and I love them not only in the summer but also year-round in jams, syrups, desserts, or drinks.
Tip: When you use cherries in your recipes, don’t throw away the stems. They make a wonderful tea that is very diuretic and good for the kidneys. Dry them out first, then make tea out of them.
The cherry stem tea is a mild-tasting detox tea, a laxative, and excellent for treating urinary tract infections and kidney stones.
