Cherry Lime Champagne Cocktail/Mocktail



Maraschino cherries are something that we can eat entire jars of in one sitting (well Flannery can, at least!)  And with a lime tree in the backyard we decided to combine two of our favorite things with another favorite- champagne!    For this cocktail we used those fluorescent red chemical bombs commonly called maraschino cherries, but in an effort to eliminate some Red #40 from our diets, we were inspired to make our own!  Stay tuned for that post tomorrow...
