From Macinac Island's famous Grand Hotel comes this "Great Pretender" recipe by Chef Hans Burtscher. I work for AAA and every year they publish a "Great Pretenders" alcohol-free drink recipe booklet. This is my favorite one for this year. Love those cherries! I'm including chilling time in the prep time.
