Bing Cherry Maraschino Mojito

Bing Cherry-Maraschino Mojito

From the orchards around The Dalles, Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge, to the orchards surrounding Wenatchee, Washington, cherries are a major crop where I live in the Pacific Northwest.  Each season I like to create new cherry recipes for pastries, pies and cherry cocktails.
