Tonight, I knew that I was in need of an ice cold beverage with a little bit of liquor in it so I thought I would share it with you here. Love and I went to eat at a burger joint in town, Umami Burger, one Saturday evening and found an Adult Cherry Coke on their menu. I thought that this one might be easy to recreate at home, and I already knew that it would be delicious so I sent Love out to buy coke. We couldn’t buy just any Coke mind you, because we needed Mexican coke. This is of course preferred while it is still made with real sugar!
As far as what gives the beverage it’s cherry flavor, you can see there is some cherry vodka.We used Skyy in this iteration because it was what we had on hand. I’m not sure what kind of cherry flavored liquor they used at Umami Burger, but I can assure you that it was even more delicious than my own concoction. Maybe I should go back and test theirs out again tomorrow night.
I used the larger side of the jigger to measure out the vodka portion of this beverage. This side equals to 1.5oz. I filled it up once dumping it into the bottom of the glass before pouring the bottle of coke over top.
This beverage really hit the spot in a way that I cannot describe. It doesn’t have an overwhelming liquor flavor, but it also gives you that night cap feeling that you’re sometimes looking for on a Friday night. It will also get right at your sweet tooth, and you won’t have to reach for dessert. It’s a total win/win if you ask me. It was my guilty pleasure of the week.
