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

I have been looking for a recipe for Cherry bounce! My grandmother used to make it from those small cherries that she used to pick when visiting her family in the bayous of Louisiana. Thank you for posting!

Whoa is this good! Finally after waiting I'm sipping tonight! I used brandy in place of the bourbon and omitted the lemon peel. It's really super good! I will be making this again when cherries are in season! Thanks Mirj!
