Sparkling Stone Fruit Cocktail

Happy Fourth of July! In search for a summer cocktail that would be appropriate for the fourth, I thought about mojitos, sours, and juleps. I considered sangria and punch. I didn’t want to embark upon the full-day of drinking that can accompany the fourth, but rather was looking something light & bubbly. I finally settled on a recipe I adapted slightly from Middle West Spirits. I can’t say I really succeeded in creating a drink that felt ‘light’ but it was delicious and using a Stone Fruit vodka seemed to compliment the tart cherries bubbling away on the stove bound for hand pies.

And garnish with a cherry! Delicious & dangerously strong. Be careful with these! 😉
