Summer Cherry Diablo

June 20, 2010

Author Notes: I'm an oenophile, but that's about it when it comes to enjoyment of evening beverages. However, in anticipation of this cherry challenge, I asked my husband to pick up a bottle of tequila on Friday night. I had visions of a cherry sorbet tequila cocktail dancing in my head. Here we are on Sunday, tequila gone, my fingertips stained from pitting two pounds of cherries, and the Summer Cherry Diablo to show for it. Hard work, but someone has to do it, happily in the name of summertime, cherries, and food52. NOTE: This is my summertime take on the classic El Diablo, replacing Crème de cassis with my Summer Cherry Sorbet.gingerroot
