Cherry bomb fizz

Here is another in a series 
of our weekly Saturday Sippers! posts.

This drink is 'da bomb! It's loaded with summery cherry flavors, and the sweetness is balanced with lime juice. Doesn't everyone have a bottle of cherry kirschwasser that we only use once in a blue moon when we make a cheese fondue? Well, here's another good use for it! These drinks were fun to sip out of jelly jars.

3/4 cup pitted cherries
juice from one lime
 1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces cherry kirsch
2 ounce vodka

Makes 2 cherry-licious drinks.

Place pitted cherries, lime juice and simple syrup in a blender and whizz it up. Add kirsch and vodka, and give another quick pulse of the blender. Pour into a glass with ice cubes and add seltzer water. It will fizz up in a dramatic way, so make sure to let your guests see this part. Garnish with cherries and a wedge of lime.
