Dark Cherry Fizz

I don't know why, but this past weekend, I was craving dark cherries.  Oh, and vodka.  Enter, the Dark Cherry Fizz. 

Most of the newer restaurants in Chicago have drinks that include Creme De Violette.  It's a liquor that comes from violets...the flower.  Yes, you read right.  It's floral and perfume like, but it's delicious when used properly in a drink.  It also adds this beautiful purple hint. 

The fresh cherries really make the drink.  They are so beautiful!

You might want to make a big pitcher.  This will go fast.

Here's the recipe per cocktail: 

1 Oz Vodka
1/2 Oz Creme de Violette
1 Tsp Agave Nectar 
Lemon Juice, Splash 
Black Cherry Seltzer Water 

Mix everything together in a shaker.  If black cherry seltzer isn't available, skip the agave and use zero calorie dark cherry soda instead. 

YUM!  Stay thirsty.
