I adore the combination of flavors in this recipe. The secret is to thaw the lemonade so it’s still slightly icy—this way the cocktail will be cool and refreshing. For a nonalcoholic option, use peach juice and lemon-lime soda instead of schnapps and vodka. —Julie Danler, Bel Aire, Kansas


  • Ice cubes
  • 4 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces peach schnapps liqueur
  • 4 ounces thawed lemonade concentrate
  • 4 ounces cranberry-raspberry juice
  • 16 maraschino cherries


  1. Fill a shaker three-fourths full with ice cubes.
  2. Add vodka, schnapps, lemonade concentrate and juice to shaker; cover and shake until condensation forms on outside of shaker, 10-15 seconds. Strain into 4 cocktail glasses. Place a skewer with 4 cherries in each glass.
