The rich, sweet earthiness of black cherries meets the spicy freshness of basil in this scarlet-hued beverage. Fresh lime juice adds an extra punch to the tartness of the cherry. It all comes together in a perfectly poured evening mocktail.
- Wynk Black Cherry Fizz sparkling seltzer
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 3 teaspoons black cherry concentrate
- 3 basil leaves
- Crushed ice
- Rocks glass
Place the lime juice and two basil leaves in a pint glass or cocktail shaker and muddle until basil is fragrant. Pour in the cherry concentrate and strain over ice into the rocks glass. Top with Black Cherry Fizz sparkling seltzer. Garnish with a basil leaf.
If you don’t prefer the tartness of black cherry concentrate, try pomegranate or blueberry juice as a tasty alternative.
