Hard Cherry Lemonade

By Bobby Lozano & Heather Anzallo

This whiskey Hard Cherry Lemonade gets its punch from spiked cherries. Starting with fresh cherries, we added MurLarkey Handcrafted Three Tea Whiskey (a local whiskey from Bristow, VA) and Spicy Pineapple Head seasoning and allowed them to soak in all the flavors overnight. Combined with the sweetness of lemonade and tarte black cherry juice, the cherries give the extra punch to this drink.

Spiking the cherries needs to be done the night before, so plan accordingly.
