*hic!* Wow, I didn't know that cherries could absorb so much booze! I tried 12 cherries: 4 with Amaretto, 4 with Courvoisier, and 4 with Maker's Mark Whiskey. I loved the Amaretto ones, they weren't too strong and the flavor really complemented the cherries. The Cognac and whiskey were like having a shot! They're excellent; a little goes a long way for me, though. I'm thinking that you could do some of those emerald-green cherries along with the red ones at Christmas, or do all green ones with some Irish whiskey for St. Patrick's Day... so many ideas! Thanks for this recipe,Bergy!
