It’s summer, people and I am all about the stone fruit right now… particularly cherries. We’ve gone through 5 pounds in a week and a half. I’ve put them in baked goods, drinks, yogurt, etc. I must admit, this super simple libation might be my VERY favorite way to enjoy this ruby red fruit.
Summer drinks, particularly slushies, shouldn’t be overcomplicated. No one wants to spend an hour prepping ingredients for a drink that is meant to be sipped poolside in the summer sun. This little libation has 3 ingredients: blackberry soda, cherries and coconut rum. I feel compelled to warn you about one teensy thing… it goes down very easily and for a lightweight like me that means I’m on the train to “Tipsy Town” with only two drinks.
This cherry rum slushie has quickly become my favorite summer sip for a few reasons. First and foremost, it is delicious! The fact that it is only 3 ingredients and it comes together in roughly five minutes flat is a close second. The best reason – you can make a big batch and serve everyone at once.
Grab a bottle of coconut rum, some fresh cherries, call your friends and celebrate summer!
Fire up that blender!
- 8.4 oz blackberry soda, frozen in ice cube trays
- 1/2 cup coconut rum
- 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted
- Combine all 3 ingredients in blender until smooth.
- (about 30 seconds)
- I used Izze blackberry soda. They did not sponsor this post, I wasn't compensated in any way... We just like it.
