Makes 3 (8-oz.) jars

Kirk Samuels of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, shared this recipe. Stir the cherries and their syrup into anything bourbon-flavored, or use them to gussy up sparkling beverages, such as club soda and ginger ale.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring first 2 ingredients to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking constantly, 10 minutes or until mixture is syrupy. Remove from heat, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).

Step 2

Remove pits from cherries, leaving stems intact. Divide cherries among 3 (8-oz.) sterilized jars. Whisk bourbon into juice mixture, and pour into jars, filling to 1/4 inch from top; wipe jar rims. Cover with metal lids, and screw on bands. Chill 2 weeks before using. (Will keep in fridge up to 6 months.)
