While we all have fond memories of topping our Shirley Temples with those bright red cherries, the time has come to elevate your craft cocktail with something a little more sophisticated. Presenting Six Lugs’ decadent Cocktail Cherries. Deep burgundy in color, with a deliciously complex, sweetand nutty flavor, these all-natural cocktail cherries are crafted in small batches using northern Michigan cherries and tall natural ingredients (read: no FD&C Red No. 4). Don’t drink? Top a few on your kid’s ice cream sundae or slices of sharp white cheese. Retails $14.99+, www.sixlugs.com
