Cherry Rosemary Cooler
This non-alcoholic Cherry Rosemary Cooler is a cool and refreshing drink, ideal for the hot weather.
The savory hint of rosemary in this cooler makes this a perfect, unique and elegant drink. I have picked cherries because I love the tart flavor of cherries and also because I love their beautiful and unique color. The addition of rosemary is what I have experimented with in this cooler. The rosemary has added a wonderfully herby note to this citrusy and tarty cooler.
This cool drink is the perfect balance of tart, sweet and savory flavors that makes it an ideal choice for summertime. The lovely color imparted by cherries makes it super elegant and perfect for your brunch parties or kitty parties, pot lucks, game nights and house parties, or just to refresh and rejuvenate yourself with a cool cool drink. Plus, this is so quick and easy to put together that you don’t really have to work all that hard to whip up this pretty drink.
Cherries are one of our favorite superfoods. Cherries are loaded with powerful antioxidants.
Everyone knows how delicious cherries can be, but did you know that they can also relieve pain, help you avoid premature aging, and add years to your life?
They taste great and their deep red color is due to antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which may help reduce inflammation and lower both triglycerides and cholesterol.
Added bonus? Tart cherries may also be helpful for sleep because they're one of the few foods that naturally contain melatonin, which help regulate the body’s internal clock.
They also contain anti-inflammatory compounds which help in arthritis pain relief and reduce belly fat.
