Sweet & Spicy Cherry Bourbon Smash

Yield: 1 Handcrafted Cocktail

Skill level: Easy

Spice level: Mild-Hot

Rainier cherries muddled with bourbon create the ultimate summer cocktail. Rainier cherries are the sweetest of cherry varieties and have a milder flavor that pairs well with honey and bourbon.

Note: The “spicy” part is optional; just leave out the cayenne.


  • ¼ cup pitted + halved Rainier cherries
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Dash of cayenne pepper {optional}
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • Splash of sweet vermouth
  • 1 ½ ounces bourbon
  • Ice
  • Club soda


In a cocktail glass, muddle the cherries with honey, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and sweet vermouth. Then add in bourbon and stir. Top with ice and a splash of club soda.

Enjoy responsibly!
