  1. Step 1

    Combine the cherries, sugar, lemon juice and thyme in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 8-10 mins or until cherries are tender and release their juices. Set aside for 5 mins to cool. Add the amaretto or cordial and stir to combine. Use a fork to mash until cherries are coarsely crushed. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.

  2. Step 2

    Pour the cherry syrup evenly among serving glasses. Top with prosecco or sparkling water and decorate with thyme sprigs to serve.

Recipe tip

COOK. STORE. SAVE.
Try it:
Elderflower cordial can be used instead of amaretto liqueur for a non-alcoholic version.
Swap it up: You can use sparkling water instead of prosecco.
