This cherry-infused bourbon is so easy to put together and makes the best cocktails! The sweet cherries and rich bourbon are a perfect cocktail match.



3 cups bourbon or whiskey
3 cups cherries, pitted and stems removed


  1. Pour the bourbon over the cherries in an airtight container.
  2. Store away from light. Every few days or so, shake the jar.
  3. Let the bourbon infuse for at least four weeks, preferably six weeks. Serve neat, on ice or in a cocktail.


Pitting cherries can get messy. Wear an old shirt that you don’t mind if it gets stained.
