If you're a fan of cherries and prefer your cocktails on the tart side, then I have the perfect drink for you.
I can only drink so many foo-foo cocktails. I like things on the tart or sour side. I also like to keep my ingredient list small. It makes for a easier happy hour. This Tart Cherry Vodka Sour has four simple ingredients and perfectly fits the bill.
I always have vodka in the liquor cabinet. There's also a pretty good chance I have grapefruit flavored vodka too. I love it.
For this refreshing cocktail I used the grapefruit flavored vodka and mixed it with the tart flavor of sour cherries. A splash of limeade and some tonic water and voilà! It's happy hour!
When you're at the grocery store be sure to visit the juice aisle for the tart cherry juice. It's an organic, crimson red bottle and it's nowhere near where you would find maraschino cherries. Those are in the dessert aisle. Head to the produce section for fresh tart cherries to garnish your glass. The soaked cherries are delicious and are the perfect way to finish your drink.
