So, this is like a twofer … While the bourbon is seeping into the cherries, it is also extracting out their wonderful cherry flavor, leaving cherries that taste like bourbon, and bourbon that tastes and looks like maraschino cherries.
Drain your maraschino cherries add them into a clean jar. Reserve the cherry syrup for another use.
Pour bourbon over the cherries until they covered. We want to keep the cherries below the surface; nothing should be exposed above the liquid.
Seal the jar, let it sit undisturbed for at least 4-7 days at room temperature.
Keep the berries submerged in the bourbon until ready to use. Use your boozy berries to garnish drinks, desserts, etc. The remaining cherry-infused bourbon is great on the rocks.
A 16 ounce jar of cherries usually contains about 25 cherries. Therefore, this will yield a solid six 4 count servings of cherries, and six 1 ounce servings of bourbon.
