Drunken Cherries

The holidays are coming!  Do you all like to pretend that you are straight out of Mad Men and make craft cocktails at your house?  Drinks such as Manhattans, Old Fashioned, Martini’s are all coming back into style.  Why not make a spectacular garnish that you can use or make for gifts?  These cherries are the best and can make your cocktail go from average to superstar in a flash! xoxo

Ready In 15 minutes

Microwave bourbon (the highest proof possible) and brown sugar in a microwave-safe dish until hot, about 1 minute. (Or heat in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot.) Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Place cherries into a small jar and pour the hot liquid over them; gently press on the cherries to make sure they are submerged. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 week or up to 1 month.
