Cherries are in season and I am obsessed. There’s nothing like a big bowl of cherries for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dessert. It never seems like they are in season long enough, so I inevitably try to gobble as many as I can up before they disappear for another year.
Adding these fresh, ripe cherries to a Moscow mule is a match made in heaven. The sweet and tart cherries with the spicy ginger beer (I love a ginger beer that really packs the ginger in!) really hits your taste buds with a ton of flavor.
I am especially excited about sharing this cocktail because today is a day for me to celebrate! I am finally getting the eye correction procedure I have been waiting to get for who knows how many years. In just an hour from now, I’ll be heading back home and getting ready to a couple days of recovery.
I’ll be a little absent for the next few days but I am leaving you in great company with this perfectly summery cherry Moscow mule. Cheers to clear vision!
