Cherry Liqueur #1

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Fruits / Liqueur / Vodka

1/2  pound  Bing cherries
1/2  pound  Granulated sugar
2  cups  Vodka

Pick plump, shiny, well-coloured fruit with green stems, avoiding dark coloured stems. Season is late April to August. DO NOT rince until use. Use cherries as soon as ripe. Wash, stem, and towel dry cherries and place in a jar. Pour sugar over the cherries, followed by the vodka. DO NOT mix them. Cover with lid and store on a shelf for 3 months without disturbing, then strain. Liqueur is ready to serve. Recipe can be varied with extracts (chocolate, mint, orange, etc). Add approximately 1 teaspoon of extract to finished liqueur and let sit for another few weeks. Experiment with small portions of flavorings to find your desired taste. Container: Wide mouth quart jar.

Cherry Liqueur is one of the most rewarding, whole-flavored liqueurs you can make. There are many varieties of cherry liqueurs on the market; this recipe is a general simulation of many. It is excellent when sipped or in mixed drinks. Make during cherry season to keep the cost reasonable. Well worth the time and effort.
