    Made this over the weekend for some friends...had the cherry mixture done the day before to meld better. The color was lovely when mixed. The flavor wasn't great...did not have much cherry flavor beyond the cherry noir flavored vodka. Ended up muddling the cherries to try and get more flavor...helped some. Perhaps muddling at the start would have helped...

    I made this for an engagement party last weekend. It was absolutely delicious and added beautiful color as well. It was definitely a hit with all of the guests! I made it the day before and it made the cherries very flavorful. I'll definitely be making this again!

    Great recipe - this was a huge hit with all of my neighbors. Its very time consuming - I recommend bringing this drink to a party, rather than making it for your own party. I substituted the sparkling water with Black Cherry Fresca, and I really liked the difference.
