    Sour Cherry Old-Fashioned

    Get whisked away by a refreshing cocktail made with whiskey or bourbon. The alcohol works in summery cocktails such as the classic mint julep, or in more autumnal fare such as the maple bourbon cocktail. The punch of sour cherries counters the rich oak flavor from the whiskey.

    24 frozen sour cherries
    1/2 cup water
    3/4 cup whiskey
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons kirsch
    Thin lemon-zest strips (from 1 lemon)

    1. Place cherries in a heatproof bowl. Stir water and sugar in small saucepan to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil, and pour over cherries. Let cool completely. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    2. Drain cherries, reserving syrup. Thread 4 cherries onto each of 6 skewers. Make 3 drinks at a time: Pour 6 tablespoons whiskey, 3 tablespoons kirsch, and 4 1/2 teaspoons reserved syrup in a cocktail shaker 3/4 filled with ice. Shake and po...Read More »
