Cherry Pie #2
1 Liter Everclear – 190 proof
8 cups Cherry Juice = 64 ounces
2 cans tart Cherries in heavy syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 to 2 tsp. Vanilla or Almond Extract – Optional
Put everything – except Everclear – into large saucepan
Bring to a boil
Stir often – make sure sugar melts completely
After mixture cools down to room temperature, add the Everclear
Pour into mason jars that have been sterilized
This is best after storing it in a cool place for a couple weeks – however it can be consumed right away. The longer it sits the better the flavor
Drink smart – don’t get crazy – this stuff is strong – this is great served as a highball with lots of ice and Sprite, 7-Up or Soda Water
However many like to drink this as a shot. Just beware of the strength.
PLEASE — NEVER EVER drink and drive!!!!!!!
