Just In Time For Summer… The Best Cherry Cola Recipe!


The perfect summer bevy has arrived… Cherry Cola!

For the last month, I have been wondering what the heck we were going to do with all of the cherries growing on our cherry tree… because this year, we have had more cherries appear than ever before!!! This means lots of opportunities to have fun in the kitchen coming up with new and creative cherry recipes!

This cherry tree is one of the reasons we bought this house. It is so beautiful, and I’ve loved going out each Spring/Summer with Justin and the kids to pick cherries. Over the years, we’ve done everything with our cherry stash: chocolate cherry granola bars, Okanagan cherry vanilla overnight oats and even ice cream sandwiches! But of all the recipes we have tried, there was one thing we could use more of… drinks!! So today, I’m sharing a fun, new recipe for the adults to enjoy on the porch, by the pool, or wherever your heart desires!

So, without further ado… here’s the recipe!!
