This drink needs a name!

After a long day selling many books and seducing unsuspecting strangers with foraged foods, we returned home and created a new cocktail.  It was a group effort.  I made the sweet fern (Comptonia peregrina) infused rum last summer.  Michael suggested a splash of seltzer and a cube of ice, Mark poured a drop or two of St. Germaine, and I added some home preserved sour cherries in syrup.

Now what do we call it?

As a taster and collaborator, I'll offer "the St. Sweefer." Terrible name! Great drink.

Well, clearly I can't suggest a name since I've never sampled the beverage (hint, hint ;)

I agree with Leda...and I'm going to go infuse something (bayberry leaves?) right this second.

It sounds dreamy.
