Black Tea Cherry Jerry

Black Tea Cherry Jerry

A different spin on the classic Cherry Jerry, we’re skipping on the Cherry Coke and substituting for black tea. The dark cherries are an incredible compliment to black tea, creating a robust, bold, and brooding cocktail perfect for a night in or on your way to a night out.

Black Tea Cherry Jerry

Makes 1 glass // Prep Time: 5 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 rounded tsp or 1 sachet/bag of black tea
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup black cherries, halved and pitted
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 oz Sailor Jerry Rum (or any spiced rum)
  • Ice cubes
  • Cherries, lemon wedges, and/or mint sprigs for garnish


Heat the water to 212°F and steep tea for 3-5 minutes. Remove tea and set aside to cool.

In a cocktail shaker combine the cherries, honey, and lemon juice and muddle together with a wooden spoon. Strain into a cocktail glass, pressing on the cherries to get maximum flavor.

Add in a handful of ice cubes and top with the tea and rum. Stir gently and garnish with cherries, lemon wedges and/or mint sprigs.
