      I used to make a very similar Cherry Bounce: 1 lb. cherries, 1 cup sugar and 1 fifth vodka. I've also made it with brandy; both very tasty, but I've not included the lemon. I'll try it next time. It turns out to be one of the smoothest liquors you'll ever have so be careful. I presented a small clear bottle to my parents at Christmas one year (beautiful in color) and it was gone in nothing flat. Thanks for posting.

      This is delish !!! We make something very similar here in Portugal, the only difference is adding cinnamon sticks instead of lemon peel, Thanks Diana
