If you're a cocktail lover like me you will be absolutely obsessed with this version of a classic. Since cherries are naturally a little tart, this cocktail isn't overly sweet. The perfect drink for summer days and my new favourite.

Pour 1 cup of cherry juice into ice cube trays and freeze until solid.

Place ½ cup of cherry juice, lime juice, rum, frozen cherries and frozen cherry ice cubes into a blender.

Blend until combined and slushy. If desired add extra plain ice cubes to thicken it.

Serve immediately.


For the slushiest texture, freezing most of the cherry juice in ice cube trays in advance is important. You can keep these in the freezer until you need them. If you have not done so though, you can add extra plain ice cubes before blending. Ensure that the juice is super cold.

You can adjust the sweetness by adding a little honey or castor sugar if your cherries are not very sweet. I didn’t find this necessary as the juice blend I used was sweetened.

Note: If you’d like to make cherry slushies for kids or virgin cocktails for those who don’t drink alcohol, feel free to omit the rum.

This recipe makes 4 x 150ml servings or 2 x 300ml servings.
