BOTW: Cherry Nice ~ loaded

My Best of the Web for this week is all about the summer cocktail.  When I saw this on Williams Sonoma's website, it just screamed summer to me.....or maybe it's because we're headed out of town to one of my favorite places on earth for a little R and R. 

As a matter of fact, as you're reading this, I've probably settled in and am enjoying one of these or something very similar.

Cherry Nice

1 3/4 cups silver rum
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup agave nectar
Crushed ice as needed
6 maraschino cherries plus juice from jar

In a pitcher, whisk together the rum, lemon juice and agave nectar until combined. Refrigerate until cold. Pour the mixture into a Twist ’n Sparkle bottle and carbonate according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Let rest for 1 minute.

Fill 6 double old-fashioned glasses with crushed ice. Pour the cocktail over the ice, float with maraschino cherry juice and garnish each with a maraschino cherry. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
