1Place the frozen cherries, ice, mint, rum, and lime simple syrup in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2Pour the mixture into chilled glasses and top with crushed ice. Garnish with lime wedges and cherries.
3Lime Simple Syrup Directions
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, lime juice, and lime zest over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature minutes before using. If making in advance, store in a sealed container within the refrigerator.
You can substitue vodka for the rum if preferred.
