Ingredients

3 Tbsp sugar1 ½ Tbsp water1 cup pitted sour or sweet cherry, fresh or frozen (not thawed; see Tip)⅓ cup fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for garnish2 cup seltzer½ cup gin 12 dashes bitters ice cubes

Directions

1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. (Alternatively, combine sugar and water in a small bowl; microwave, stirring once, until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute.)

2. Puree cherries and lime juice in a blender until mostly smooth. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the sugar syrup (to taste), seltzer, gin and bitters; pulse to combine.

3. Fill 4 rocks glasses with ice and top with the cherry-lime rickey. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.

Tip: To pit fresh cherries, use a tool made for the job—a hand-held cherry pitter; it also works for olives! Or pry out the pit with the tip of a knife or vegetable peeler.
