Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh lime juice (about 9 limes)
  • 3 pounds dark cherries, such as Bing or Burlat, pitted
  • 2 1/4 cups best-quality black cherry or plain vodka
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle sparkling water

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring sugar and 1 1/4 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat; let cool completely. (Makes about 2 cups syrup.) Syrup can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 month.

  2. Step 2

    Put lime juice into a medium nonreactive bowl. Halve 2/3 of the cherries; add all cherries to lime juice. Stir in syrup. Refrigerate at least 1 hour (up to overnight).

  3. Step 3

    Stir cherry mixture and vodka in a large serving bowl. Fill 12 glasses with ice. Spoon 1/2 cup cherry-vodka mixture into each glass. Top with sparkling water; serve immediately.

    These are great! Yes, you can do non alcoholic! I make mine using frozen dark cherries and frozen limeade. I've made it from scratch and the easier method. Frozen cherries & limeade much better. PS, I don't add sugar.

    I have made these with my kids - we just add club soda to the cherry/sugar/lime mixture for them and they love them. It's like a delicious cherry soda.

    Could this be made non-alcoholic?
