Ingredients

  • 1 qt. cherries
  • ½ lb. sugar (cut loaf)
  • 1 pint whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon allspice, cinnamon and cloves (heads removed)

Method

Wash cherries and pick off the stems. Fill a large mouthed bottle alternately with a thick layer of cherries, a layer of loaf sugar and a few of the whole spices, continue until the bottle is almost full. Then pour in the whiskey until full. Cork and let stand in a dark closet for 2 months or more, older it is the better.
