as the weather continuously heats up, we're gonna need a lot of summer cocktails to keep us cool! this one is for the cherry lovers. it is simple, healthy & so refreshing. if you aren't familiar with cherry juice, you can find it in the natural section of your grocery store. it contains no added sugars, just 100% pressed black cherries. it seriously taste like biting into the best summer cherry!
to add a touch of fiz (because every drink needs some fiz) i mixed equal parts cherry juice & zevia's black cherry soda. the cherry juice is quite concentrated, so this helps dilute it. zevia's soda is naturally sweetened with stevia, making it zero calories & no added sugar. i love when drinks (like sangria) include fresh fruit too, so i garnished it with fresh blackberries. feel free to use which ever berries are your favourite! cherries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or raspberries will all work for this cherry berry spritzer.
