Sweet Cherry Vodka
Recipe type: Drinks
  • 500g sour cherries, pitted (keep 10 of the pits)
  • 500g sugar
  • 500ml Kirkland french vodka
  1. Place the cherries and 10 pits in a large jar and sprinkle the sugar over top.
  2. Cover the top with a fine cheese cloth, or paper towel, and elastic. This is to keep fruit flies out.
  3. Place the jar in a warm place for 3-4 days. The sugar will dissolve and the cherries will lose their juice.
  4. Drain the juice into another container (jar) and mix into it 250ml of additional vodka.
  5. Add another 250ml of vodka back into the jar containing the cherries.
  6. Close each jar with the seal and allow them both to rest for 2 weeks.
  7. After 2 weeks again drain the vodka from the jar containing the cherries and mix it and the additional vodka juice into bottles.
  8. Leave the bottles to sit for 3 months.
  9. The cherries can also be used in cakes (for adults only!) I'd recommend my White Forest Cake.
