    I Love Cherry. I loved this drink. I used non alcoholic alcohol. And it tasted fine to me.

    I have yet to meet a flavored vodka that tastes descent. Had some vanilla-vodka leftover and tried the recipe...ick, just like I thought. Next time I think I'll use a vanilla liqueur and plain vodka combo instead.

    I can't wait to try this! Alice, the garnish looks like currants dangling from the glass.
