Frocktails: Cheery Cherries

Rainier cherries are one of my favorite fruits. I love them so much I have a photo of them on my living room wall. Their season is fleeting, so I look forward to it every year. For this cocktail, I incorporated the cherries into a simple white wine spritzer that really showcases their color and flavor.

When I spotted this BB Dakota dress, I knew it'd be a perfect match for my drink thanks to those same irresistible bold colors. The bright splashes really pop thanks to the white, and the sheer neckline and breezy full skirt make it perfect for the dog days of summer.

Rainier Cherry Spritzer

4 Rainier cherries
1 tablespoon sugar
5 oz. of white wine, chilled (I used Riesling)
3 oz. of club soda, chilled

Pit and halve 4 cherries and muddle together with 1 tablespoon of sugar until the mixture becomes juicy and the sugar dissolves. Add to a glass and pour in 5 oz. of white wine. Top with 3 oz. club soda and give it a stir. Serves one.

Dress found here. Frocktails is a monthly feature for fashion and libation inspiration. See past pairings.
