Still have sour cherries left? Great drink for the holiday:
- Sour Cherry Caipirinha
- 4 sour cherries, pitted
- 1 half-inch thick slice of fresh lime, cut in half
- 2 teaspoons superfine sugar
- 2 ounces cachaça ( cane juice liqueur similar to rum)
- Garnish: 2 pitted sour cherries
In the bottom of the cocktail shaker, muddle the cherries, lime slices, and sugar.
Add the cachaça and fill the shaker with ice. Shake well, then strain into a serving glass. Garnish with two sour cherries on a skewer or long toothpick.
