Spiced Cherry Sparkler

Spiced Cherry Sparkler

Happy Friday Friends! I feel like it has been forever since I posted a cocktail recipe, but I'm so glad to get back to it with this gem. This easy-to-make cocktail is one of my favorites and is sure to impress at any Holiday party!


Spiced Cherry Sparkler

This cocktail contains some of my favorite flavors- cherry, vanilla and a mix of Holiday spices! You use a tart cherry juice but add sweetness with the addition of a spiced vanilla simple syrup, which I'll explain how to make below. The sparkles at the end of your sip from the club soda makes this drink so fun and festive!
