So long, maraschino! Make way for our bold new cocktail garnish.
BLACK WALNUT COCKTAIL CHERRIES
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
*1 bottle Black Walnut SweetShine
*1 lb fresh cherries
*pint jar with lid
Wash cherries and lay in a single layer on a towel to dry.
Remove stems and use cherry pitter to remove all pits.
Place pitted cherries in pint jar, packing it tight, and cover with Black Walnut SweetShine.
Cover and refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving.
Cherries will keep up to 2 months in the refrigerator.
Use these delicious cherries to garnish your favorite cocktail. (And when it’s empty add the remaining liquor to a Rum & Coke. You’ll thank me later).
Or make a batch for Dad this Fathers’ Day (June 21!).
Or better yet, give them as gifts for your wedding party this summer. Best. Wedding. Ever.
