CH CH CH CH Cherry Bomb! is a fancy (and boozy) version of cherry cola. A nostalgic pop culture icon to bring back idyllic afternoons of summers past. It’s easy to make and will take you back to a simpler time.
Recipe by Alec and Tasman from Attica.
15ml bourbon, rye whiskey (or any dark spirit)
45ml cranberry juice
60ml bitter red liqueur (Amaro, Campari, Aperol, or sweet vermouth)
10ml verjus or dry white wine
1 tsp sugar
Cherry, glacé cherry or any sweet red berries, to garnish
1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker over ice.
2. Shake or stir (to dissolve the sugar).
3. Strain and serve in a high glass over lots of ice and garnish with a cherry, glacé cherry or a red berry.
To make a non-alcoholic version of this drink, replace the spirit and liqueur with black tea syrup. To make the black tea syrup, steep 2 tsp/teabags of any black tea with 4 tbsp of sugar and half a tsp of vanilla paste or extract in 1 cup of hot water for 8 minutes. Strain and put in the freezer to cool down.
