Ol’ Fashioned Cherry Soda

One of my fondest memories as a child was the first time I tried a Cherry Coke.  I remember it as if it just happened last weekend.  We were in Queens and my aunt walked me down to the corner store for an early evening snack consisting of a few potato knishes, a bag of New York Style potato chips and…a Cherry Coke.

The sweet taste of the sugary cherry along with the bite of the carbonation is something that I still enjoy to this day.

And while I enjoy a Cherry Coke from time to time, I much prefer a kicked up version I call Ol’ Fashioned Cherry Soda.

Just as the last drink – The Wife’s Away Tea – I won’t push any exact measurements rather expect that everyone drink to their own tolerance.


  1. In a pint glass, fill with as many Old Smoky Moonshine Cherries as desired
  2. Add some of the moonshine for an added kick
  3. Smash cherries with the back of a spoon.
  4. Add as much ice as desired
  5. Fill remainder of glass with your favorite soda (I prefer Coca-Cola)

Enjoy! (Responsibly, of course.)
