Cherry Baby - I'm gonna make you mine
Good old Frankie Valli huh? Okay, I know it's Sherry Baby, but never mind huh?
Anyway, in the continuing thread of cherry related posts, I submit, for your consumption, Cherry Schapps/Vodka
Take some cherries, and half fill sterile bottle with them. If the bottle already contained vodka, it'll be sterile anyway, or you can use any of the methods such as boiling, that are already on the interwebs. Add 1 tbs of sugar. This step is optional, but really helps to draw out the juice from the cherries Shake daily. It is ready after 1 month, but gets better with time. You can, if you so wish, remove the cherries and top up with a little more vodka after about 2 weeks, but personally, I'm going to leave them in, so I can have a nice taste of summer when I finally cave and drink the vodka... in about August ;)
If you are feeling really frugal, when you remove the cherries, you have repeat the steps above with sherry to make sherry cherry. Don't add the sugar, I'm told it's nasty.
