I’ve got spring and warmer temps on the brain. So I wanted to create something super bright and refreshing for this cocktail. I got the inspiration from a restaurant that I frequent, Napa Flats. They have this cocktail, of the same name and similar ingredients, on their menu. I asked the bartender about how much of the Effen Black Cherry Vodka they used in this drink, but for the most part, I was creating this cocktail straight from taste. It contains strawberries, lemonade, Effen Black Cherry Vodka and Sprite. The lemonade and simple syrup was created using 16 Water online. SOO Good! Let’s get to the amazingness of this yummy cocktail…
6 oz. Lemonade (recipe below)
3 oz. Effen Black Cherry Vodka
3 Tbsp. strawberries, hulled & chopped
1 c. ice
Splash of Sprite
Combine all the ingredients and blend. You want some of the ice to still be a bit chunky, so don’t blend it all the way (you don’t want it like a smoothie).
2 cups of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
2 cups of Simple Syrup (recipe below)
3/4 gallon of 16 Water online
Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher and stir to combine.
Simple Syrup Ingredients
1.5 cup Sugar
1.5 cup 16 Water online
Place ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring ingredients to a boil. Stir, stir, stir. Once it comes up to a boil, turn the heat off. Continue stirring. You want the sugar to dissolve into the water. Let the syrup cool down before using.
