Cherry Liqueur

Cherry Liqueur

½ lb. Bing cherries                     
½ lb. granulated sugar
2 c. vodka

Wash, stem, and towel dry cherries and place in jar.  Pour sugar over the cherries, following with the vodka.  Unlike the other recipes, do not mix them.  Cover with lid and store on shelf for three months without disturbing, then strain.  Ready to serve.  Recipe can be varied with extracts (chocolate, mine, orange, etc.).  Add approximately one teaspoon of extract to finished liqueur and lit sit another few weeks.  Experiment with small portions of flavorings to find your desired taste.  Yield: three cups.
