Rinse all the lemons, cherries and utensils properly before getting started.
Now it’s time to prepare cherries. First of all take out their stems and pits and then cut the cherries into small but equal pieces. Use a finely honed knife to do this with perfection as it will make the drink more presentable.
Now you will need 6 ounce of lemon juice which is equal to ¾ of a cup. Take fresh lemons and slice them into halves. This will help you to remove all the seeds which can come out while squeezing. Cover the measuring cup with a lid.
Take a mixing pitcher and put lemon juice, white sugar and sliced cherries in it. Now it’s time to mix all these ingredients properly. For that purpose, use a pestle and crush them until they look like a paste.
In second last stage, add 6 ounce chilled vodka and 2 cups of crushed ice into the pitcher. Stir with some strength for around 45 seconds until your drink is icy cold.
You have successfully gone through the process but still it’s not over as garnishing is also an important part. Pour your Cherry Lime Rickey mixed drink into serving glasses and make it more elegant with two whole cherries and a wedge of lime on the top.
