Cherry Infused Bourbon is an amazing way to drink your favorite bourbon. Keeping its delish Bourbon flavor – the cherry just adds a touch of sweet!
Cherry Infused Bourbon
Well, I’m at it again. I love taking normal drinks/boozes and bringing them to the next level. I especially like to do this if I’m having people over – casual or formal! It’s so wonderful having a completely different take on a cocktail to serve friends/guests/family. It makes me look so fancy – which I LOVE!
The fun part about Cherry Infused Bourbon is that it is really easy to make. Infusing is just simple – especially when you use awesome fresh ingredients like cherries. It’s not hard, and because you’re infusing not just adding the taste is so amazing. You’ll knock everyone’s socks off. I know this knocked mine off and I made it!
If you’ve ever drank a Manhattan then you know that cherry and bourbon go together brilliantly. The cherry taste came through without overpowering the wonderful taste of bourbon. I didn’t want to hide the bourbon flavor in Cherry Infused Bourbon, but I wanted both flavors to come through and I did! YEA!
A quick note – you’re going to want to either pit the cherries or cut them to make sure all of the flavors get in. That cuts down on the time you have to let the bourbon sit with the cherries so you can make yourself a cocktail faster! I pit mine because I have an awesome cherry pitter (thanks, husband) and it’s easy. You could easily cut the cherries and get the same results.
