Lemon-Mint Cherry Bomb

Recently, husband and I needed some drinks for some back yard warm weather fun, so I made up this cocktail. Last summer, we made real Sicilian Limoncello, the recipe to which I swore not to divulge.  But, you can either make your own similar Limoncello by following a recipe like this one here (which takes time, a few days up to several weeks). Or, you can buy some ready-made, such as  PalliniCaravella, or Villa Massa.

Here’s the recipe for the drinks we sipped in the hot tub.

Lemon-Mint Cherry Bomb

  • 1 oz limoncello
  • 1 tbsp grenadine
  • fresh mint
  • club soda
  • 1 tsp simple syrup  (or 1 sugar cube or teaspoon white or brown sugar. This is optional depending on how sweet the limoncello is you make or get. )
  • crushed or cubed ice
  • maraschino cherries

Muddle some fresh mint leaves in a highball glass or tumbler, with the (optional) simple syrup or sugar. Add ice.

Pour in Limoncello, grenadine, and top off with club soda. Garnish with maraschino cherries and a mint sprig.
