Bourbon Cherry Bomb
Made, written & photographed by the creators of the Point
We bought a bottle of bourbon for a different recipe - coming soon! - and decided to try it in an actual cocktail. You would think this is a sweet drink, but it actually balances out for a great combination.
Luckily, we have a whole bottle of bourbon to use for a whole lotta Bourbon Cherry Bombs!
Bourbon Cherry Bombs
makes 1 cocktail
1/3 cup frozen cherries, slightly thawed
1.5 oz bourbon
1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon almond extract, vanilla can be substituted
Sprite, or other club soda
Begin by muddling the first 5 ingredients, 1/3 cup cherries, 1.5 oz bourbon, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 1 teaspoon almond extract, and a squirt of lemon juice. You could also use the end of a wooden spoon, just make sure to break up your cherries and get all ingredients incorporated.
Add ice to your cup, and top with Sprite, or other club soda.
