Cherry Liqueur #2

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

2 1/2  cups  Sweet cherries (Bing)
12 2/3  ounces  100-proof Vodka
5  ounces  Simple syrup
4  drops  Lemon extract

Into a quart jar, add cherries that have been cut in half and pitted. Add alcohol and water to cover cherries. Macerate - tightly covered 2 to 3 weeks at room temperature, shaking daily. Filter through cheesecloth and then through a coffee filter; add simple syrup and lemon extract (optional). Next add (top with) water to bring the total volume up to 25.4 ounces. The liqueur is very good at this point; it will become smoother if it is aged for a few weeks or more.

You can also make this recipe using 80-proof vodka, 16 oz. (476 ml.). Makes 750 ml.
