Bourbon-Cola Cherries


  • 2 cups bourbon
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 pound red cherries


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine bourbon, Coke and sugar. Bring to a soft boil, stirring occasionally, and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until reduced to half the volume.
  2. Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature. In the meanwhile, remove stems and pits from rinsed cherries using a metal straw.
  3. Transfer cherries to a large jar, and pour the syrup over the cherries. Store in the refrigerator, and serve on sundaes or as a garnish on cocktails.
