Lemon twists are the traditional garnish, but those things are way too much work (at least for me anyway), so I decided an amarena cherry would be a nice substitute. Yeah. Those things cost about $13 for a small jar. Not gonna happen. Instead, we grabbed a can of bing cherries. They ended up turning what should have been a champagne-colored drink pink, but we liked the hint of sweetness they added.
Anyway, these drinks are great for a celebratory occasion, especially when the weather is warmer. They're nice and light with the perfect combination of floral and fruity.
