I created this cocktail (or actually modified an existing recipe) to toast the beginning of Spring Break. (I teased you a bit regarding this debut on the Chorizo Wedge Salad post.)
Christy at Culinary Diva reminded me recently of a cocktail recipe that fell into oblivion in the archives of EE. Christy recently highlighted “The Muddler” during March’s Blogger C.L.U.E. event. Thank you, Christy, for reminding me about this cocktail.
I wanted to create something a bit different to celebrate a week off from school.
Enter Whiskey Cherry Smashes:
Whiskey Cherry Smashes
6 frozen sweet cherries
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
2 oz. whiskey (I used Jameson.)
splash of ginger ale
Smash cherries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add lime juice, whiskey and ice. Strain into cocktail glasses and add a splash of ginger ale.
For a tarter cocktail, skip the ginger ale.
Here’s to no night-time school activities.
Here’s to no phone calls about broken down buses.
Here’s to not assigning detentions and in-school.
Let the relaxation begin!
(Since Jameson Irish Whiskey is being used, these could be the perfect cocktail, albeit not a green one, to welcome St. Patrick’s Day.)
