Thirsty Thursdays: Cherry Pie Gin Fizz
Recipe type: Cocktail
  • Cherry pie filling (You can use store bought, or make your own - cook 2 to 3 cups pitted cherries + ¾ cups sugar + 3 tbsp corn starch over medium heat until mixture is glossy and thick, then stir in the juice of 1 lemon and chill until ready to serve)
  • 1 oz gin
  • ½ oz lemon juice
  • Club soda
  1. Spoon 2-3 tbsp cherry pie filling into the bottom of your drinking glass.
  2. Add gin and lemon juice, and stir well.
  3. Fill glass with ice (or use one giant ice cube like I did).
  4. Top glass off with club soda.
  5. Enjoy!
Doesn't taste as much like cherry pie as I would have liked, but still good. Will have to think on this one some more...
