The Tart Cherry Juice Martini

If you’re into healthy living, you have heard all about tart cherry juice. It’s the latest elixir. Touted as the most powerful antioxidant known to Homo sapiens, it is capable of aligning karma with dharma, kills free radicals (except Al-Qaeda), resolves your sleeping problems, fixes your flat feet, works as a laxative; and it may even pump up your pheromones.

A Tart Cherry Juice Martini

Recently, I bought a bottle. Well, it does not taste great. Hence, I set out to ameliorate the situation by converting the tart cherry juice into something more palatable. After all, I have six bucks invested in this stuff. Here’s what I came up with – the Tart Cherry Juice Martini.

Wow, this is wonderful medicine. Now we’re talking. No, you shouldn’t kayak afterwards. Stay in port, amigo.

3 oz tart cherry juice

2 ounces vodka

½ oz Cointreau  I’ll spank you if you substitute Triple Sec!

1/3 teaspoon fresh lemon juice.

Put it in a shaker with plenty of ice. Chill it down good. Pour into a 6 oz martini glass. Enjoy……

    Hey Ed
    Great recipe for the Tart Cherry martini! We served them with friends over for a summer babacue, and they were a hit. Bill and I adjusted the proportions to …shall we say, ‘juice them up’, but overall a nice summer beverage. And apparently, good for you too. (feeling a little less radical myself after a few… live and let live)
    Love the picture… makes me thirsty.

      Scott,
      Glad to heard the cherry concoction was a hit. And I’m glad you’re feeling less radical too. Peace. So you and Bill adjusted the octane? Ummm. Ok, I’m down with that. Sounds like a plan. Beside you wild men had two fine babes on hand to save your arse. Keep up the good work!
