WebMD Recipe from

  • 2 teaspoons
    turbinado sugar (see Note)
  • 2 ounces
  • rainier cherries
    few leaves of lemon basil
    crushed ice
    sparkling water
  1. Pit and halve the cherries. Put the cherries, lemon basil and turbinado in a glass (or pitcher if making more than one), and muddle it with a muddling tool, or the bottom of a wooden spoon. Get aggressive, you need to get as much juice out of the cherries as possible.
  2. Fill a glass 3/4 full with crushed ice. Add the vodka and muddled cherry mix and fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water.

NOTE:  I find that rainier cherries aren’t quite as sweet as bing cherries, making this drink quite light. If you like a little more tart or sweet flavor, add a splash of cherry juice to the glass.
