This Cherry Cola is a more sophisticated version of the ordinary, yet very popular, Cherry Coke®. The flavors layer throughout the drink very nicely. Amaretto can sometimes overwhelm a drink, but in this case it adds just a hint of subtle flavor rounding out all the flavors. You could also substitute Dr Pepper® for the cola.
Rum infused cherries would be perfect in this drink!
