Mix it up with delicious cherry lemonade cocktail substitutions!

  • Southern twist: Try substituting sweet tea vodka for a southern twist on this fun spritzer.
  • Tropical treat: Use rum instead of vodka for a tropical vibe.
  • Slushy: Use extra frozen cherries instead of ice, and blend.
  • In a pinch: Use frozen, jarred, or fresh cherries, depending on what you have easy access to. Fresh is my favorite, but frozen is a great way to chill the drink without watering it down.
