Recipe by ImPat

Part of a Christmas menu from one of our national supermarkets. Though I am not a fan of cherries I thought others may like. I have put this recipe into the Christmas catergory which would apply more to countries that have their summer at this time of year.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 300 g cherries (fresh or frozen pitted)
  • 12 cup caster sugar
  • 14 cup water
  • 750 ml champagne (recommend Cattier Non Vintage)

Directions

  1. Place cherries, sugar and water in a small saucepan and simmer on low heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until cherries are soft and liquid is syrupy and allow to cool.
  2. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth and then strain through a fine sieve, discard solids, and refrigerate syrup until ready to use.
  3. To serve, place 1 tablespoon of syrup in each champagne flute and top with champagne.
