I love anything made with Bing cherries! So I especially love this Bing cherry cosmo cocktail recipe!
Bing cherries were my mom’s favorite fruit. I remember watching my mom’s eyes light up when cherry season rolled around.
Back then, cherries used to come in paper bags. My mom Claire would sit on her recliner in our parlor. She’d have an empty bowl beside her and I’d watch as she rolled down that paper bag. She would dip her hand in the bag and continuously pop a cherry in her mouth.
Of course, my mom would share her Bing cherries, but she’d get the lion’s share.
When cherry season rolls around, I eat MORE than my lion’s share. You know why? Because I can.
I’m a grown up. I can do whatever I want. As long as it’s legal.
I love being a grown up. Because that means I’m able to drink this delicious Bing cherry cosmo cocktail!!
Here are other cosmo recipes I make:
On to the recipe.
The ingredients for the Bing Cherry Cosmo Cocktail and the Mixing
Above we have vodka, Cointreau, a lime and five cherries squirreled away in the cocktail shaker.
Let’s get started.
I take my muddler and muddle the heck out of 5 pitted cherries.
I fill that shaker half way with ice.
Now, for the vodka.
I measure out 2 ounces of Grey Goose.
I pour the vodka into the shaker.
Time for the Cointreau. I measure out 1 ounce of that delicious orange liqueur.
Into the shaker it goes!
Now for the lime juice. I squeeze out 1 ounce of the glorious greenish liquid.
I pour it into the shaker.
Time to cap that bad boy and shake the crap out of it. Crap = shake at least 20 times.
I grab my martini glass and spear 3 cherries on my martini pick. I strain the liquid into the glass and fish out some crushed cherries.
Now, let’s look at the vertical view.
It is so delicious!
I hope you enjoyed this cherry cosmo recipe.
