Cherry season is in full swing and what better way to honor this delicious fruit than making it into a refreshing drink! There is something about summertime that makes all drinks taste so good! Maybe because we are sweating more! All I know is this time of year I love to experiment with different types of beverages both kid-friendly and the adult kind;) When I first saw these cherry margaritas floating around the blog world I immediately put them on my list and boy am I glad I did they are so good! You must try these this weekend! Enjoy!

12 fresh cherries, pitted
