Description

Homemade cherry infused vodka = heaven on earth


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 pounds  pitted cherries
  • 1  cup sugar (I used superfine sugar because I had some on hand)
  • l liter vodka (4 – 5 cups, enough to fill container(s)

Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients in sterile containers. (I submerged the jars and lids in boiling water for 10 minutes.) The total volume of your container(s) should be half a gallon
  • Shake or swirl daily until sugar has dissolved, it takes a few days
  • Store the containers (in pantry or basement) for  4 to 6 weeks, strain and re-bottle
  • Allow to age 2 to 4 months

Notes

I sometimes substitute brandy for a small portion of the vodka, maybe 1 cup. I just think brandy and cherries go so well together.

If you this with sour cherries, you have wisniowka!
