Posted in the Washington Post Online today. I have not tried it myself.

Bourbon Cherry Lemonade

From "Real Cajun" by Donald Link

Ingredients

1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) Woodford Reserve or bourbon of your choice

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) sweet cherry juice

Lemonade, as needed

Bourbon-soaked maraschino cherry, for garnish (optional)

Method

Fill a Collins glass (or comparably-sized glass) with crushed ice. Combine bourbon, cherry juice and crushed ice in a shaker. Shake vigorously, then strain into Collins glass. Top off with fresh lemonade and garnish with a cherry, if using.

Drink, rinse, repeat. (KOD: Those are my instructions!)

Makes 1 drink.

I'll try it soon, but it sounds pretty dangerous: the cherry juice should cover up many of the bourbon notes. You won't realize you're wasted 'til it's too late!
