Healthy Manhattan Cocktails Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: You can meal prep (or make party pitchers) by making the drink and skipping the ice. Then cover (jars are great for this) and store for later.
Storage: Will hold for 2 days in the fridge, or add to the freezer for 2 weeks (it won’t freeze solid thanks to the booze).
Serving: Pour over ice and enjoy.

    Yum! I have tried this exactly as the recipe states and I also really like it with 1 Tbsp of the cherry juice added in.
