Cherries Jubilee Champagne Cocktail

Here’s another champagne cocktail that I made with Drink of the Week. This time, we used champagne, bourbon, and cherries. Frozen cherries, to be exact:

I like using frozen fruit in cocktails because it doubles as a flavor component as well as the ice cubes. Cherries and bourbon go well together and feel very sophisticated on the palate. So sophisticated, in fact, that this is almost like drinking a Manhattan in champagne cocktail form. Recipe:

Cherries Jubilee Champagne Cocktail

(Makes two drinks)

    2 oz frozen cherries, approximately 12 cherries
    3 oz bourbon
    1/2 oz lemon juice
    1 dash bitters
    Champagne to top


Put the cherries and bourbon in a cocktail shaker. Muddle the cherries thoroughly, making sure they are smashed and infused with the bourbon. Add the lemon juice and shake. Pour the contents into two champagne glasses. Top with champagne and a dash of bitters. Enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious! What else is good is filling a wine glass with frozen cherries and pouring red wine over them. Any idea where can I buy frozen cherries in New York?

  2. Olga, thanks for the tip! Frozen cherries should be in the freezer section, beside the other frozen fruit, in any decent grocery store. Hope that helps.
