This cherry julep recipe is courtesy of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and is made using cherries, a PUG Muddler, a Swing-A-Way ice crusher, a Tap Icer, and a Vita-Mix blender.
In a mixing glass, muddle together cherries, cherry juice, sugar, and lemon juice. Add gin, sloe gin, and cherry brandy. Add ice cubes and stir, at least 30 seconds, to combine. Fill a rocks glass with cracked ice; strain cocktail over cracked ice. Top with seltzer and garnish with lemon slice. Serve immediately.
