Cherry Whiskey Recipe

Cherry Whiskey

Some fruits favour gin, others vodka, but cherries definitely favour whiskey. The earthy malty flavours of whiskey both heighten and are heighten with the addition of cherries, combining to make a smooth liquor that can be enjoyed both straight and in a long drink on those cold winter nights. I often drink this as a night cap after an evening out.

Ingredients:

400g Wild Cherries

750ml Whiskey

Sugar to taste

Method:

Place your cherries in a zip seal bag and put in the freezer over night

Remove and place in a 1ltr jar

Pour over the whiskey and leave to rest for at least 3 months

Strain through a muslin cloth and add sugar to taste

Enjoy straight or in a cherry whiskey smash – 2 shots cherry whiskey, 1 good wedge of lime, ice and filled with coke-a-cola – Tasty.
