Cool Down With This Must-Try Cherry, Mint and Lime Julep

Marcella's Cherry Julep
Prep Time
5 min
Yields
1 drink

A cherry twist on a classic, this julep gets its sweetness from the maraschino cherry juice. You can use water to finish or club soda if you like fizz as much as I do! For the crushed ice, simply pulse ice cubes in a blender until desired consistency is reached. Cheers!
