DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, soak the cherries in bourbon, stirring occasionally, until bourbon is almost absorbed.
  • This will take 2 to 12 hours.
  • Place the butter in a medium mixing bowl and with an electric mixer (fitted with the paddle) or wooden spoon, beat until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides.
  • Add the soaked cherries, zest, sugar and bitters or additional bourbon (if using) and beat to incorporate, scraping sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • Scrape into a small bowl, serving crock or butter mold and cover tightly or shape into a long roll in grease-proof paper (plastic, wax or parchment) for storing and slicing as needed.
