This actually came out closer to a creamed cherry candy type mix. The Cherry is a little mild. 2% Cherry should be ideal for a more pronounced Cherry note. I'll probably change the name, but I'm very pleased with the flavor of this mix... It's just not a cherry-sprite float.
This recipe is missing that that soda fizz. I know you use champagne on occasion. It might be what's missing here. The cream note could also be reduced a little.
