Cocktail Hour: Cherry Bloom

Guess what? The Cherry Blossoms have finally decided to start blooming! Yay! They should start peaking in a few days, and since I'll have quite a few visitors in town this weekend I'm sure we'll do our best to get out and explore! To celebrate, I'm going to make a few of these concoctions this weekend to celebrate all the pink prettiness around town! 

The Cherry Bloom
This couldn't be simpler, and if you like sweet cocktails, this one is right up your alley! Get excited!

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 TBSP grenadine (or cherry juice)
  • Club Soda (or try sprite/ginger ale)
  • Mint and Cherry for garnish

In a tall glass full of ice combine vodka and grenadine syrup. Top with soda, then garnish.

And you're done. It's perfectly pink, and can easily be adjusted to your preferred level of sweetness.

This looks awesome! I got your comment about meeting up- I would definitely love to but I am only going to be in town from Saturday- Monday morning, so I think the schedule is going to be packed super tight. Next time I'm in DC, though! {before you move!}

I just found a popsicle recipe that's similar and I thought... this would make a great cocktail! Thanks for proving me right.

They look good! Not a fan of sweet drinks but I think it would be easy to control the sweetness here!
