Okanagan Cherry Splash

Make this your signature drink for the summer.

  • 1 Bottle of Bella Sparkling white wine *
  • Cherry Syrup

Did you think I wouldn’t tell you the rest?

1 lb. dark sweet cherries, pitted, stems removed, cut in half

2 cups water

1 cup berry sugar

Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for about 18-20 minutes. Pour through a sieve, reserving the liquid and discarding the skins. Refrigerate until ready to use.

In 6 champagne flutes, fill the glasses 3/4 full of the sparkling  wine. Add 1-2 tsp. of cherry syrup and stir. Enjoy!

*Bella is the brand name of a new sparkling wine and really is very good. Make sure it is well chilled. Ask for it at the liquor store.
