Whiskey Cherry Smashes

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.)
ice cubes
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.)
