If you need a cocktail that’s as refreshing as it gets, look no further than a cherry julep. This interpretation takes the already-delicious mint julep and adds the tart flavor of cherries.

You’ll need

2 ounces cherry brandy
2 ounces gin
1 ounce simple syrup
Sparkling or soda water
Mint leaves
1 brandy-infused cherry

To make
  1. A day before making the drink, remove the pits from a handful of cherries and place in a bowl. Add enough brandy to almost cover the cherries. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate.
  2. Shake the gin, brandy, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Muddle a few mint leaves in a rocks glass.
  4. Fill it halfway with ice, strain the drink, and top with soda water.
  5. Garnish with a brandy-infused cherry and a mint sprig.
