Whiskey Cherry Smash

Friday, July 13, 2018
Whiskey Cherry Smash is a summer easy to make slushy summer cocktail with a virgin option from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

It's going to be hot, hot, hot here this weekend, and a Whiskey Cherry Smash definitely is a perfect cocktail for the patio or by the pool on a hot day. It's a perfect Fri-yay cocktail!

I'm going to be honest I'm not sure if this is a true Whiskey Smash or not, but I smashed the cherries with lemon and lime. So, I think that counts.. What do you think?

We added the Homemade Cherry Whiskey from the Whiskey Soaked Cherries I posted a few weeks back. You can find cherry whiskey occasionally at the store, but making it yourself is well worth the time. Then it was topped off with sparkling water and crushed ice to keep it light for summer.

On another note Thank You to everyone who has messaged me about being mentioned in July's issue of Better Homes and Gardens for Mediterranean Pasta Salad. It was quite the surprise, but what was even better was how many of you were just as excited as we are!

Are we ready to make a cocktail to celebrate?

Muddle together cherries, sugar, and lime to make a Whiskey Cherry Smash from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Muddle together 4 pitted Cherries, 1-2 teaspoons Sugar, Juice of 1/2 a Lime, and 1 Juice of a 1/4 Medium Lemon.

Add Cherry Whiskey to make a Whiskey Cherry Smash Slushy Cocktail from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Add a shot of Cherry Whiskey, and smash until cherries are finely macerated.

You can totally omit the whiskey too for a virgin option! It's still so refreshing.

Top Whiskey Cherry Smash off with sparkling water from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Stir in 3/4 cup Sparkling Water or Seltzer Water, until well combined.

Whiskey Cherry Smash is a favorite slushy cocktail recipe with a virgin option from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I then ran ice through the blender to make finely crushed ice like a snow cone and topped it off. But you could use large ice, regular ice, or whatever type of ice you're in the mood for.. 

I highly recommend crushing the ice in the blender, because who doesn't love a fresh cherry slushy drink when it's hot out?

Garnish the drink with Whiskey Soaked Cherries, and Fresh Mint. Maybe even a lime slice.. 

Cheers to the weekend! 

A few other favorite whiskey cocktails are: Peach Whiskey Iced Tea (which also happens to be in my top 10 recipes), Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Ice Tea, and Hot Apple Cider Buttered Whiskey's are perfect for the end of the night around the campfire once the temperature drops.
