- Simple Syrup- Simple syrup makes the drink nice and sweet. Simple syrup mixes into mocktails better than pure sugar.
- Club Soda- Club soda gives the cherry fizz mocktail it’s fizz. Club soda is a mild flavored carbonated drink so the focus can still be on the flavor of the tart cherry juice.

- Orange Juice- A splash of orange juice adds even more nutrients to this drink. It also makes the flavor more complex and interesting.

Gathering all of the ingredients together to make the drink is probably the trickiest part (and it seems pretty easy to us!). After you have everything you need to make a cherry mocktail, all you need to do is measure and pour.
Sour cherry juice has a very unique taste. It is slightly sweet, a bit sour and also can leave your mouth feeling a little dry. Tart cherry juice is also quite strong. The powerful flavor is best when blended with other ingredients. While sipping on straight, tart cherry juice may not be very enjoyable, mixing it with other, delicious ingredients is!
The simple syrup in our recipe definitely helps cut the sour taste and makes our cherry mocktail nice and sweet. The lime juice actually brightens the drink and makes it taste juicier. A splash of orange juice adds another layer of citrus flavor that is delicious with the taste of sour cherries.
Since tart cherry juice, lime juice and orange juice are all strong ingredients, club soda definitely helps make the mocktail more refreshing and drinkable. All in all, our cherry fizz mocktail is bright, bold and fruity!
