You know what’s easier than you expect? Making delicious Bourbon Cherries for your cocktails and ice cream sundaes. It’s like fifteen minutes of work before a little wait. Here’s what you need:
• Some cherries
• A cherry pitter
• A canning jar
• A label (if you’re fancy)
First, you rinse the cherries — durr.
Next you pit the cherries with your trusty cherry pitter. This is the delightful Miss Anna Beth Chao getting all Vanna White with mine, which is called a Cherry Chomper. His name is Nigel, and I love him.
Well done. You pitted those with prejudice.
Now pour some bourbon up in there. Make sure all the cherries are covered.
What? You’re done. The hell, right?
Well actually, you’ll want to store the jar in a cool, dark place, and give it a shake once a day or so for four weeks before you crack it open. But still! So easy.
