OK, the name of this drink is actually a Bacardi Cocktail, but cherry bomb is way more fun to sing. It’s as pretty as a cosmo. For the official, official version check out Bacardi’s site. For ours, see below.

Bacardi Cocktail

  • 1 3/4 ounces Bacardi light rum
  • 1/4 part grenadine
  • 3/4 ounce lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass and garnish with a cherry.

    What makes it red? Does it not need grenadine or something?

  2. Here in Tennessee Cherry Bombs are marischino cherries aged in moonshine for a while! I like your version better.

    ‘More fun to sing’ is the best reason for any name change, hands down.

    “Outside the club Cherry Bomb, our hearts were really thumpin’ ! I always wondered what a cherry bomb was !! Aren’t they also a type of small firework that explodes when thrown on the ground? I think we used to have those when we were kids…. they wouldn’t let kids have that now !!
