Last week, I had a cherry limeade martini at Bluefin and this was my attempt to recreate it. After trying 3 or 4 different combinations of ingredients, this is the recipe that tasted the most like what I had at the restaurant. There was a cherry in my drink as well as a lime garnish so I did the same at home but you can’t see the cherry in the picture.
Cherry Limeade Martini
2 oz vodka
2 oz maraschino cherry flavored syrup
juice of half a lime
splash of sweet and sour
splash of lemon lime soda
lime slice and cherry with stem for garnish
Pour ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake well. Drain into martini glass. Garnish with cherry and lime.
