Purple, Green or Gold sugars

Maraschino cherries

In a pitcher, stir together vodkas, sweet and sour mix, Simple Syrup, and lime juice.

In a small rimmed dish, place 2 tablespoons water. In separate small bowls, add colored sugars. ( you can use regular sugar if you wish). Gari=nish martini glasses, f desired, by dipping rims in water, and then dipping into desired sugar. Pour vodka mixture into glass, and add maraschino cherries, if desired.

Simple Syrup
