The taste of a Manhattan in a fruit snack! Serve the cherries as a fun party nibble, or use in cocktails. Don't toss the soaking liquid--stir it into cocktails, or drizzle over ice cream or pound cake. The cherries taste best after soaking at least three days (we loved them after six days), and they will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
