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 each and every recipe in this post.
As we usually serve cherries as a just pretty garnish on top of the glass, these cherry drink recipes make the fruit instead 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 also 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 the size and volume of your glasses, 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 up right with these Cherry Margaritas that are 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 the treatment of urinary tract infections and kidney stones.
