February is National Cherry Month! Why not put those flavorful rubies to good use? Bake a luscious pie, add a healthy jolt to a bowl of oatmeal, whir up a smoothie, or better yet, craft a juicy cocktail. Just like sniffing an open bottle of suntan lotion, a rum drink made with July-plucked Traverse City tart cherries will take you straight to summer Up North, even on a gray day.
