Cherry Phosphate

A phosphate is like a Red River drink, only with a tart flavoring added, usually citric acid or lemon juice.


  • 1 (12 ounce) can carbonated water or club soda
  • Cherry flavored syrup
  • Lemon juice


  1. In a tall glass stir carbonated water or club soda into a couple of spoonsful of cherry-flavored syrup and lemon juice. Cool it all off with ice cubes.
