Holy cow, look what I did:

Yeah, I know, it’s cherries soaked in maraschino liqueur. It may not sound super exciting, and it’s certainly not for everyone, but um…you should really try it.

‘Cause it’s really kind of fun.

And tasty.

Also? Super duper easy.

All you need is a pound of Bing cherries and a bottle of maraschino liqueur. I used a brand called Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, which was the only brand in my stores here. There might be other brands available, though I’m not familiar with them.

I’ll be honest: these puppies are pretty potent on their own. Oh, but what an awesome addition they’d make to your fancy cocktails, or to a nice, crisp glass of summer sangria.

Or maybe dipped in some dark chocolate? 

Homemade Maraschino Cherries
  • 1 pound Bing cherries
  • 1 bottle maraschino liqueur
  • 1 large mason jar
  1. Fill your mason jar with cherries, and cover completely with the liqueur. Refrigerate for at least two weeks; and up to four weeks if you can wait that long! These should keep okay stored in the refrigerator for a couple of months.

Have a wonderful, fabulous weekend, and stay cool!
