Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Jigger or small measuring cup

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup tart cherry juice
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce simple syrup homemade or store-bought (see note)
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Ice
  • 5 ounces Champagne
  • Fresh cherries for garnish optional

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker, pour in the tart cherry juice, vodka, simple syrup and lime juice. Add a handful of ice. Pop on the top of the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.
  • Pour into an ice-filled white wine glass. Top with Champagne and gently stir. If desired, garnish with fresh cherries. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If making homemade simple syrup, simmer the 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir frequently to dissolve the sugar. As soon as the sugar dissolves, remove from heat. Allow to cool and store until chilled.
  • To make this in a pitcher rather than individual glasses, times the tart cherry juice, vodka and simple syrup by five and pour into a pitcher. Then, pour an entire bottle of Champagne into the pitcher and gently stir.
