  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 wedges lemon
  • 1 pound red cherries, pitted
  • 1 bottle Moscato d’Asti, chilled


  1. Pour the sugar into a shallow dish. Run a lemon wedge around rim of a champagne flute. Invert the flute, and dip into the sugar, coating entire rim. Set flute aside, and repeat with five more flutes.

  2. Place the cherries in a medium bowl. Using the back of a wooden spoon, slightly crush the cherries. Divide cherries evenly among flutes, and fill with Moscato. Serve.
