I don’t even know how to express to you just how amazing this drink is. I sincerely am speechless. It is the epitome of a Western Montana summer. It is sweet. It’s tart. It’s cool, thanks to the mint, and has lots of sparkle thanks to my SodaStream. I. Am. In. Love. (Don’t worry Dan and boys. I still love you best…mostly completely)

You will need to use the fresh cherry syrup I posted previously. So prepare and refrigerate that first. It’s most definitely worth it.
