    Are these made with regular tart cherry juice or the concentrate?

  2. Nicole says:

    Thanks, Patty! Phil let me sample some tart cherry juice concentrate yesterday (I think it came from King Orchards) and I was blown away by the flavor. Will be great not only for mixed drinks, but also sauces and dressings. Can’t wait to experiment with it!

    These sound even better than the ones I had last winter poolside in San Juan. Viva cherry juice!

    This is the best mojito I’ve had yet. They always sound good but when I’ve ordered one in restaurants I’ve always been disappointed. This one did not disappoint! Refreshing, not too sweet, great flavor.

    Please add the Montmorency Tart Cherry (MTC) Margarita to your page!
    1 Tablespoon lime juice, 2-4 Tablespoons King Orchards MTC juice concentrate, 1 shot tequila and water to make. Frozen or on the rocks, the MTC margarita has replaced strawberries in my mixology. Easy and deliciously distinct.
