Cherry Cosmopolitan

One of my favorite cocktails is a Cosmopolitan. When fresh cherries are in season, I love adding them to my Cosmos.

Adding Storied Goods sugar cubes to my cosmos makes it even easier to make my favorite cocktail. . Sometimes I don’t have simple syrup on hand so these sugar cubes easily take the place of simple syrup in my cocktail recipes. Plus the fun flavors in these sugar cubes add a little extra zing to my cocktails. I add the cherry orange zest sugar cubes to my Cherry Cosmopolitans.

I am happy to add that these lovely sugar cubes are made right here in my hometown, Roanoke, Virginia.
