Where To Buy Cherry Coke !NEW!
Cherry Coke launched in early 1985 in select U.S. cities and rolled out nationwide that summer. It was "the first major entry into a whole new category: cherry-flavored sodas," Brian Dyson, president of Coca-Cola USA, told The Coca-Cola Bottler at the time. The release of what one Atlanta Constitution contributor called "a wonderful memory" came after years of research and development, consumer testing at the 1982 World's Fair, and thousands of requests from thirsty Americans for cherry-flavored Coke. Just 10 weeks after its debut, the Cherry Coke brand had a consumer awareness level of 91%.

I drain the bottle of Cherry Coke and take it to the kitchen. One small square of the counter is where I pile empty bottles for recycling. I feel like I just filled the recycling bag, but yet again, the counter is near full. The meticulous rows of empty bottles are there to remind me I accomplished something really big. I wrote a whole freaking novel in 28 days.
I have to say, I was super excited to try this drink. I love Dr.Pepper Cherry and Cherry Coke to begin with, so I was excited to find a healthier option. I think this one is slightly more carbonated or feels more carbonated than the root beer flavor. If you're into cherry flavored sodas then you will for sure enjoy this.
So it's a little surprising that, when Bloomberg TV set up a blind taste test for the Oracle of Omaha, he couldn't tell which of the Styrofoam cups was filled with his ichor of choice. Looking dapper in a red v-neck sweater, Buffett actually chose Dr. Pepper Cherry over the actual Cherry Coke. To be fair, our senses of smell and taste do decline with age, so it's not all that surprising that an 82-year-old man would have a hard time distinguishing between cherry-flavored, HFCS-packed sodas. But Buffett is no average 82-year-old man. The Dow closed up yesterday, so it's hard to say whether his misstep has had an impact on the markets, but if this doesn't shake consumer confidence, what will?
It is made with a layer of creamy white chocolate fudge that is flavored using a splash of maraschino cherry juice and a few drops of cherry flavoring and is filled with pieces of juicy maraschino cherries and topped with a thin layer of cola-flavored chocolate fudge.
Inspiration for this fudge came from Trish from Mom On Time Out who made her Cherry Coke Fudge by boiling butter, sugar, heavy whipping cream, and cherry gelatin. She then stirred in white chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and maraschino cherries and topped that fudge layer with some chocolate frosting flavored with Coca-Cola.
It took a bit of experimenting, boiling down real Cherry Coke, using more maraschino cherry juice, making the fudge all chocolate, and I finally found a fabulous, easy version of the cherry and cola-flavored fudge.

Finally, blend your drink until a slushie consistency is met. You will want this thick enough to taste like a slushie, but soft enough to drink through a straw. If you make it too thick on accident, simply add a little extra cherry coke and reblend.
I think this is a fine drink. I tend to have a few different whiskeys in my liquor cabinet at any given time, but there will always be that big black bottle of JD in there somewhere! I like the brand, the company, and will use Jack Daniels as a mixer any day of the week!
The ease with which you'll achieve the Cherry Coke shade depends on your starting color. "You typically have to lift the natural color enough to deposit the cherry-cola red-burgundy tone," she says. Before committing to this shade, just keep in mind that red (of any shade) is a particularly high-maintenance color. "It might take a couple of trips to the salon to get the color you want," Medchill says. "Once the color is in, it's also hard to get out."
"The cherry-cola trend is definitely for someone who is willing to stick with it," Medchill says. No matter what shade you dye your hair, you'll want to invest in a good, color-safe shampoo and conditioner. You can also use at-home hair glosses to help maintain the vibrancy and prevent your color from fading prematurely. Medchill also cautions that excessive heat styling "will pull the color out faster."
Most of my memories in life can be equated with music or food. Sometimes both. Oftentimes, music reminds me of certain foods and foods remind me of music. So, whenever I drink Cherry Coke, I think about when I was a kid dancing around the living room with my sister and dad singing the song "Cherry Coke." I kind of figured everyone knew the song (my sister and I still sing it to this day), but upon googling the lyrics, I realized it's not a very popular song. At all. Somewhere in the depths of my memory, I remembered that a group called "Bob's Diner" sang it and when I googled that, I got more results (though not many). Anyway, it goes a little something like this, "Sitting in Bob's Diner/Give me some Cherry Coke and you're mine/Cherry Coke baby/You're sweeter than wine. Cherry Coke baby..."
My point is, the entire time I was making this drink for Cocktail Friday, I was singing "Cherry Coke" to myself. And I'm pretty sure I will for the rest of my life. Though I also admit I hummed a little Rascal Flatts to myself as I carried this drink out to the deck, "I miss Mayberry/Sitting on the porch drinking ice-cold cherry Coke..." Cherry Coke is just one of those evocative drinks, I guess.
Can I tell you how excited I am that it's finally cherry season again? I can't resist buying cherries whenever I spot them at the grocery store. And even though they always seem to be on sale, they're still ridiculously expensive. Especially when it's only at the register that you realize you're purchasing 2.5 pounds. Oops. Worse things have happened.
I completely read the title of this post as Cherry Rum and Coke Cake for some reason, probably because I always have sweets on the mind, and it wasn't until I read on and then double-checked the title that I realized that it was in fact a drink and not a cake ? What I WAS going to say if it were a cake was that I used to make cherry coke cakes all the time when I was younger. And with all of your wine/liquor baked goods, I think you should totally make this drink into a cake!
I grew up in the Philippines and back then, we didn't have cherry (or vanilla) coke. When we moved to the US I was ecstatic to find it, I loved cherry coke! I even make jello shots with cherry flavored jello & cherry coke. Great drink, and I loved reading about your memories about it too!
Cherry coke totally reminds me of being a kid. I recently bought on - thinking it was diet - and was blown away at how much sugar the real Cherry coke had. It was, of course, still amazing. Love that you made it into a cocktail!
LOVE cherry coke! And I have a weird fascination with making childhood beverages into alcoholic ones... like I'm still trying to make a Shirley Temple with added alc. Your Cocktail Fridays sound lovely ? I should try to do the same with my guy.
As I alluded to in the blind portion, I think this soda would make a great base for a cocktail, it has this complex shifting character that I think would add a lot to a mixed drink. In a ginger beer blind, I think this will hold up well, but in this cherry soda taste test, we have to rank this one near the bottom of the list.
The top spot in our blind cherry cola taste test goes to Sprecher, a brand out of Milwaukee Wisconsin that holds the title of the oldest craft brewery in the city. For this cherry cola, Sprecher infuses a cola base with Door County cherry juice and blends the brew with real Wisconsin honey, resulting in a complex bouquet of flavors that taste natural, fruity, and floral, but still delivers that characteristic cola bite.
This prohibition style is a refreshing take on a bourbon and coke that is at 12% ABV. Our Town Branch Kentucky Straight Bourbon is blended with a proprietary cherry and vanilla cola to create this very refreshing ready-to-drink cocktail. 041b061a72
