Cherry Bomb Quick Bread RecipeA quick bread recipe based on the ingredients found in a cocktail?  You betcha!  It’s got to be good, right?  And it is!
Cherry Bomb Quick Bread RecipeCherry Bomb Quick Bread RecipeEarlier this summer I dog-eared a recipe for a Cherry Bomb Cocktail I happened upon in one of my favorite cooking magazines.  It sounded so good, fruity and refreshing.  A drink right up my alley.  There is a myriad of Cherry Bomb Cocktail recipes out there, and they differ widely.   But the particular version I had seen in the magazine was similar to two of my favorite cocktails, the Kentucky Mule and a Whiskey Sour – sub rum for bourbon.

  1. How it mid August already? Keeping up will all the summer things is such a good thing! I’m finding cherries are still in season and the price has dropped from a month ago. Which makes this lush summer recipe even more appealing! I am craving a big fat slice to go with my afternoon coffee.
