This is soooo good, so simple, so easy....loved it. Used in conjunction with your cake & frosting - it's a big hit - just don't get pulled over by a cop after you pop one of these in your mouth! ;)

I just bought a small jar of cherries for this recipe. They are good and strong! I think they would be fab on an adult milkshake, or dessert. That said, they go down fairly easily, right out of the jar! ;-) Thanks so much for sharing this beauty, Rita~!

I have made this with vodka before. It is excellent! If you put a cherry in a shot glass and fill it half full with the juice and then fill the rest with Godiva chocolate liquor it tastes like a chocolate covered cherry shot. Great for the holidays!!!!!

My daughter in law loved these--will be great for our Christmas Eve get together-but aren't for the faint of heart--I think they are great.

Instead of using Rum use Ever Clear and it won,t take to many to get a buzz.

Made these for my future sil's bachelor party! They went over great! They all loved them! Tons of fun and so easy to make. I drained the cherries with a strainer and added the rum into the jar. What a surprise they had to learn that they were 'spiked' cherries! I am definitely making these for gifts this Christmas!

I made these for my Christmas gift baskets and everyone loved them! I had some extras for us as well, and we have been having a blast using them as garnish for different drinks. My favorite drink to garnish with these so far has been the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Martini. Yummy! I didn't know if I was supposed to drain the cherries or not so I just left the juice. I used 3 big jars or cherries, poured them into a large bowl and used an entire bottle of Bacardi 151. Thanks Rita for another of your GREAT recipes!

These were great in a rum and coke! Perfect garnish for any rum drink. I gave them as a hostess gift and they were enjoyed by all!

Oooooh, these make a yummy Cherry Coke! We used a high proof dark rum, and are finding all kinds of yummy things to do with these.
