Mighty Thirst: The Cherry Bing

The Cherry Bing | Mighty Girl

I wanted to call this the Chandler, so you should call it that if it makes you laugh. This is a light, juicy something Anna Beth and I mixed up just before we went floating on the river last week.

• 1 shot Bombay Sapphire
• Five cherries, some muddled
• Ice
• Odwalla lemonade

Cut out the cherry pits and muddle three of the cherries in the bottom of your glass, then place the rest of the bits in the drink whole. Add ice, gin, and Odwalla lemonade — if you feel like making lemonade fresh, even better. Lemonade to taste.

Cheers! The Cherry Bing | Mighty Girl

I’m in New York this week, so here’s to Al Green on the radio at the Ace, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at night, and seeing the sun from the other side.

What are you toasting this week?

    …another shot of gin = cherry bang?

    That looks so delicious. I have strawberries in the fridge, and a bad day to get over… so maybe I’ll tweak it a little…

  • Hilary Says:

    I’ll be lakeside in Vermont, and this will be perfect to toast friends, family, and recuperation from a month that just kept throwing curve balls. Emphasis on the balls, there. I might get crazy, and muddle some mint in there, too. Thanks for the cocktail, Maggie. I owe you one!

    NOT a fan of gin, but I bet it would be loooovely with vodka!

  • sara Says:

    I must be honest, whenever I see “Bing,” my mind immediately goes to Friends. And then I reflexively say “MISS Chanandler Bong!”

    Looks delicious – must try it!
