Cherry Bounce Liqueur

READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 50 ounces




  • Thoroughly clean a 2 quart container with a secure lid. I use an apple cider jug that has been cleaned very well.
  • Clean and stem cherries, if using fresh cherries. Thaw if using frozen.
  • Crush cherries a bit to release flavor, keeping all juice and adding to container.
  • Place remaining ingredients in container.
  • Shake until sugar is dissolved.
  • Keep in a cool, dark place shaking once a week for 3 weeks to 6 months. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
  • Strain and bottle into clean containers of your choice. I use empty beer bottles with a hinged cap.
  • Serve as an aperitif, a digestif or in lieu of a dessert wine.
  • Also makes a great gift if you can stand to give it up.
