An homage to an American classic. No drive-in or brain freeze required.
We were so inspired by Sonic's iconic Cherry Limeade Slushy this summer that we made a jam inspired by this bright, sweet, tart summer drink. No danger of brain freeze with our version though, just sweet, sour, satisfaction.
Working with our favorite orchard out of Paonia, First Fruits, we took their Rainer Cherries and paired them with the sour Montmorency cherries from Washington that we use in our Cocktail Cherries added lime juice, vanilla bean and a refreshing bubbly pour of Pet Nat white from our friend at Sauvage Spectrum in Palisade, Colorado. Supremely fresh, sweet, lip pucheringly sour and sparkly like the night skies in July.

It all started with a weekend road-trip to Paonia, Colorado, a secret valley of orchards, vineyards and grazing horses. We accidentally found Colorado's best secret, the source of the best peaches in the state. One year later we came back with a truck, a dog, and a day to pick as many peaches as we could. And we did, we filled the borrowed truck bed with hundreds of pounds of Colorado's finest peaches, ripe for the picking. Armed with a 2 year in development recipe we got busy in a commercial kitchen and cooked up a very limited run of Deliciousness for you.
