Cherry Phosphate

Claire Bush
Category Cool Drinks

Cherry phosphates are as American as apple pie - and this diner staple can be made at home, too. Try making a phosphate to spice up a burger and fries dinner.


  • 12 oz club soda
  • 2 tsp. cherry flavored syrup, such as Torani
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice, fresh or reconstituted
  • maraschino cherry, optional


Pour syrup into tall glass. Add club soda and lemon juice. Stir, add cherry and serve.

Note: Torani syrup is found in the coffee and tea aisle of most supermarkets for about $4 a bottle.

This brings back good memories. I remember sitting at the soda fountain in the drug store sipping one of these with my friends. Thanks for the recipe and the memory
