The Firecracker

Updated

The flares in the sky won’t be the only fireworks at your summer barbecue: this drink promises lots of pizazz thanks to its name, the Firecracker.

Fresh cherries are the key to this sweet sip, so be sure to visit your local farmer’s market for the sweetest (and juiciest!) selection.

Firecracker

Serves 1 to 2
• 3 oz. vodka, such as SKYY
• 6 fresh cherries, pitted
• ½ fresh lime, cut into 3 wedges
• 2 tsp. sugar
• 1 cup crushed ice

Muddle cherries, lime and sugar. Add the vodka and cubed ice. Shake and strain over fresh crushed ice. Garnish with lime and red cherries.
