Merry Cherry Cocktail


Courvoisier purists may faint if they see you pouring a bottle of VSOP into a punch bowl. But after one taste of this spiked cherry cocktail, they may just change their minds.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 1 1/2 Ounce COURVOISIER VSOP Cognac
  • 1/2 Ounce Cherry Heering Liqueur
  • 6 black cherries
  • 1 Dash of gomme
  • 1 Cup soda water
  • mint for garnish


Muddle cherries in a mixing glass and add to a pitcher. Add all other ingredients. Mix well with and top with soda water. Set out a bowl of ice so that guests can serve themselves on the rocks. Garnish glasses with a single cherry and a sprig of mint.


Cherry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
