More About This Recipe
  • Cherry season is nearly upon us and that means it’s time to start stocking up. Personally, I’m all about cherry pie. In fact, as a child I entered a pie eating contest—my first experience with cherry pie. I loved it! I came in 3rd place out of 4 people, but I got 1st place in my heart. However, cherries don’t have to live in pies. They can also live in your martini! You’ll need vodka, cherry juice, and some lemon-lime soda. Toss all of that goodness into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake, baby, shake. Obviously we take our martinis shaken and not stirred. Right? How gorgeous is this drink? I could sip these all night long!
