1 liter of vodka of choice
2 cups of stemmed and pitted cherries (I used frozen ones that were from my parents cherry trees)1/2 cup of sugar
Mix the ingredients together and put into a 1/2 gallon wide mouth canning jar. Let it sit for at least one month in a cool place or in the refrigerator. Strain using cheesecloth or a coffee filter into a pitcher or bowl. (Hang on to the cherries and add them to ice trays for an extra kick to the drink) Use a funnel to pour back into the original vodka bottle. If you'd like to jazz it up a bit...fill a few decorative bottles and top it off with a cork. I designed a tag to share so go here for instructions and to print.
Give as a gift or simply enjoy!
