It’s kinda sorta almost the weekend…certainly time to indulge in a Very Cherry Martini. Don’t ya think?!

Recently I visited tart cherry orchards in Northern Michigan. I went there loving cherries & left there loving them even more. What better than a martini to showcase this fruits bold ‘n beautiful flavor?

These are the last few weeks of a sizzlin’ summer…indulge yourself with this skinny treat.

These are super simple cocktails to make if you are entertaining…or just hanging out banging on the keys.

This would be a fun cocktail for any kind of celebration…from a mid morning brunch to a shower, wedding or birthday party.

Grey Goose Cherry Noir is lovely in this cocktail. If you can not find this delicately flavored vodka then go for a plain one.

You can experiment with other liquors as well. You guys are good like that!

I mixed tart cherry juice with sweet cherry fizzy water.

The cherry flavor is huge as you might imagine.

This is a rather sweet cocktail…not like some of my other creations which are a tad less so.

Vanilla Sugar on the rim of the glass adds a special touch.

This sounds amazing and the photos are great. I’ve always heard of cherries in northern Michigan. It’s on my wishlist to go back during cherry season and have way too much fun!

Growing up, I had 3 tart cherry trees in the garden, so having fresh tart cherries in the summer was just a normal thing for us! These days, it’s impossible to find fresh tart cherries in a store. I love tart cherries, they are so soft, you can easily squeeze them to make juice. This martini is gorgeous, definitely pinned!

All cherry? Now I wish I hadn’t finished my bottle of cherry noir on stupid stuff. I’ll just have to buy more & locate some of that sparkling cherry juice.
