Cherry Vodka Recipes

The Cherry vodka recipes experiment actually happened by accident. Recently I was going through my home bar inventory when I saw I had a whole bottle of unopened cherry vodka just sitting there alone, all by itself. At that moment, I knew I had to do something about it. There was one question though, what should I do with it? I didn’t want to drink it straight up, on the rocks, or as a spritzer.

Then I decided why not go the easier way; I can use well-known classic drinks and substitute the primary liquor with the cherry vodka and see how it tastes. There were only two possible outcomes, “Yea” or “Nay.”
