From greekfood.about.com--I wanted a cold, caffeine-free, and non-alcoholic beverage to go with the tiropites and Greek salad I'd planned for dinner, and this looked like it would suit just fine. We found some Russian preserved sour cherries and used the syrup off them. The drink had a lovely flavor--a little like apricots with hints of something almost caramel-like. It's hard to describe the flavor, but I thought it was delicious (as did my preschooler).
