Kay lived in Door County and would make this every year from the cherries grown there. Warning - It is strong and the cherries will get you bouncing before the booze will!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the sugar in the water.
  2. Mix the sugar water and liquor together in a glass gallon jug.
  3. Screw on the lid and store in a dark, dry place for about six months.
  4. Note: We make this when the cherries ripen and are available, then we let it sit in the dark until Christmas.
  5. Also, you can buy the cheapest booze available as the cherries will change the flavor anyway.
