Cherry Mint Liqueur

Cherry Mint Liqueur

2 1/2 c Sweet Bing cherries; pitted
10 Crushed cherry stones
10 Fresh mint leaves
1/2 Lemon; sliced peel of
2 c Vodka
1/2 c Sugar (not sugar syrup)

Remove the stems from the cherries, cut in half, and remove the pits. Crush the cherries lightly. Crush about 10 of the cherry stones by placing them in a plastic or cloth bag and hitting with a hammer. Place crushed pits and cherries in a quart jar. Add the sugar, then the vodka. Close the jar tightly and place in the sun daily for 1 week. Then set the jar in a cool dark place for 4 weeks. Strain. Let mature at least 2 months.
