Michigan Cherry Old Fashioned

Image via Tending the Table

A few weeks back Dan and I went to visit some friends in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I found myself completely charmed by the town and it's specialty cocktails with cherry flavors. I needed to find the tart cherry ingredient that I had been tasting. So we went into Cherry Republic to track it down.

I ended up leaving with Tart Cherry Concentrate and after some experimentation, I landed on two great cherry cocktails.
