sour cherry juice in new york

irene | Jan 17, 2006 10:49 AM

wondering if anyone has any advice or thoughts on sour cherry juice. being romanian, my whole family adores good sour cherry juice. when i was little, the good kind we used to get (from our local russian / eastern european grocery in boston) was manufactured in yugoslavia and came in a tall skinny rectangular can - the juice was sort of thick (like closer to opaque red than transparent) and very tart. post-yugoslav-collapse, this good brand vanished from the shelves. for years now, pretty much every brand i buy (still from russian / eastern european groceries) is inferior - too sweet, not sour enough, and too watery and thin. the only place i ever get close-to-good-enough sour cherry juice is when i eat out at turkish restaurants. so, the questions: where are the turks buying their sour cherry juice in new york? it seems distinctly better than the kind i get in russian stores. what other ethnicities love sour cherry juice, where are their grocery stores, and which brands are best? any ideas?

thanks!
