There are some reports that cherry pits contain cyanide, so consider leaving the pits out. This is a GREAT drink without them!

This is so good; pretty to look at and wonderful to taste; if it gets a chance to age for the whole three months it'll be even better!

I make cherry liqueur for my dear friends and relatives. To make bottles more attractive and personal I use http://www.bitlabels.com/red-cherry-liqueur-label Bit Labels service. They are quite flexible and try to meet the wishes of their customers.

Agree with Wildheart! Cherry pits *definitely* contain cyanide (in the form of Amygdalin), which is quite poisonous. Google it for yourself. Depending on the cherries, soaking them in alcohol for 10 days could get you sick from drinking a few shots. Though it probably won't actually kill you to include them, the symptoms of mild cyanide poisoning are close to a very bad hangover, and if you drank a whole bottle, it could be serious... so I why chance it. Leave out the pits and use a drop or two of almond flavoring to add the same taste without the risk.
