The Cherry Vodka Sour gets its cherry flavor from grenadine and the sour effect from – you guessed it – sweet and sour mix. It’s a simple, tasty drink that makes a nice alternative to the Whiskey Sour.
This is a great drink for an evening out – it’s on the weak side, with just an ounce of vodka, so it doesn’t sneak up on you. The flavor is easy to take, and goes well with a lot of meals or happy hour snacks.
- 1 ounce sweet and sour mix
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 splash grenadine
Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Pour in your vodka followed by the sweet and sour mix. Finish with the splash of grenadine. Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.
