Drink of the Week: Cherry Kirsch Refresher

When faced with choices, one tends to go with the more appealing, more festive or more intriguing one, right?

Thus, when presented with this past weekends entertainment selection, I choose Sumo Wrestling.

Because, I have never witnessed sumo wrestling and well, it's sumo wrestling for heavens sake.

Have you ever been to an authentic, competitive sumo match? Me either...

Sounds like good clean fun I say.

So how The Ombudsman and I ended up at a (darling but) melancholy play recounting the love story of Louis Prima and Keely Smith - set to music - I really can't say.

Not that it wasn't fab, but it was - for sure - unexpectedly out of our sphere of typical hipster past times. Heck, a musical about a 50's lounge act's heartbreaking romance doesn't even register a blip on our collective radar...

And yet, it (Louis and Keely Live at the Sahara) was really, really good and I really, really recommend it. Lotsa good tunage. Much hep-cat jive talkin' grooviness.

Afterwards, (much like the last six times we decided to attend the theater) we went for a drink.

Actually, that's not exactly true. We snuck a nip in the parking lot before hand. And downed a few cold ones at the show. And then we went for a drinky to celebrate our new found love of musical theater...

Oh wait...

So if you want to follow in our daring footsteps and sample something new (and alcoholic) and a bit off the beaten path, this cocktail is the way to go.

Refreshing and seasonal. What more can you ask for...

Now try this my peaches, and taste the joy.

1.5 ounces Clear Creek Distillery Cherry Kirsch
Pitted cherries for garnish
Slice of lime
Soda water

Pour the kirsch into a tall glass. Add a few cherries and bruise. Top with soda water and garnish with lime slice.

Serves one.

The cherry is the state fruit of Utah

Sales of super-premium rum - brands priced more than $30 a bottle - grew 43 percent in 2007, generating $29 million in revenue. There were approximately 500 types of rum available in the United States in 2007, and overall rum sales grew almost 9 percent from the previous year. - WSJ

I took a cooking class this weekend at Spork! Check it out if you are in the area...


Oh Rachael this looks so pretty! I love an unusual cocktail, makes me feel so...cultured and cool!
I would have loved to hear your take on Sumo wrestling, but musical theater is quite grand aas well!
