Cocktail Cherries

    32 Servings


  • 1 1/4 cups Brandy, rum or bourbon
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 cups Pitted Cherries
  • 2 1-inch pieces Orange Peel


In a small saucepan over medium heat, add your alcohol, water and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, fill a 2-pint jar or two 1-pint jars with the pitted cherries and orange zest. Top with the syrup.

Cover and store in the refrigerator and use within one month. If preferred, you can also use canning jars.
