Cherry-Lime Fizzy Mocktails

Show me someone who isn’t down for a pretty, fizzy drink.

You can’t, right?Cherry-Lime Fizzy Mocktails | A Nerd Cooks

With how ridiculously hot it’s been of late, these drinks are a welcome treat.

They are bubbly, sweet, and tart.  Cherry-Lime Fizzy Mocktails | A Nerd Cooks

You’ll need:

For the cherry simple syrup –

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 15 cherries, pits removed and roughly chopped

For the drink (makes 1)- 

  • 1 oz. cherry simple syrup
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • lime flavored sparking water (I used La Croix, because it’s my jam)
  • lime slices, for garnish (optional)

To make the simple syrup, combine the water, sugar, and cherries in a medium sauce pan.  Heat over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally.  Turn the heat off and allow the simple syrup to cool.

Pour the simple syrup into a glass with ice.  Add the lime juice and top with sparkling water.  Garnish with lime slices.
