It's the time of year when bing cherries go on sale, and I immediately think of making a big batch of this amazing cherry mojito drink and throwing a party. Either make your own simple syrup (by boiling water and sugar) or use the pre-made kind, then stir in lime juice and bing cherries for a DELICIOUS summery tasting simple syrup. Add syrup to a glass with sparkling water and cherry vodka, and you have an amazing mojito on your hands! (Mint is optional - I like the taste well enough, but I add it to the glass mostly to make it look more impressive). If you've got kids or teens on your hands, sub the vodka for some Sprite or 7-Up and add a few maraschino cherries for the novelty factor. Cherry-lime goodness for the whole family! Cheers!
