Cherry Smash

Celebrate fresh cherries with this mint-infused cherry cocktail. Black cherry-flavored seltzer gives the drink the most cherry flavor, but plain seltzer also works well.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted fresh or frozen (thawed) cherries
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 8 teaspoons sugar
  • 6 ounces (3/4 cup) dark rum
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 cups cherry-flavored seltzer

Instructions

Step 1
Divide cherries, mint leaves and sugar among 4 glasses. Mash everything together with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in rum and lime juice. Fill glasses with ice and top with seltzer. Garnish with mint sprigs.
