Ingredients

  • 2 12oz Cans Schweppes Black Cherry sparkling water
  • 8 Fresh or frozen pitted dark cherries
  • 6 Mint leaves
  • Crushed ice
  • liquid sweetener, if desired

Instructions

  • Divide the cherries and the mint into 2 glass tumblers. Muddle the cherries and the mint. Fill each glass halfway with crushed ice. Pour 1 can of Schweppes Black Cherry Sparkling Water into each glass and stir. Sweeten to taste. 

Notes

  • A muddler is a bar tool used to release the flavors of the fresh ingredients such as herbs and fruits.  If you do not have a muddler, you could use the end of a wooden spoon.
  • Most smash recipes are mixed in a cocktail mixer but I do not recommend this method because of the sparkling water.
  • You could leave this drink unsweetened (delicious) or you could sweeten it with liquid stevia drops.  You could also use a sugar free powdered sweetener such as erythritol to make a sugar free simple syrup.  Just mix ½ cup of erythritol with ½ cup of water in a saucepan and heat until the powder is dissolved.
