Cherries are marinated in bourbon whiskey to make them extra special. These are perfect as garnishes in drinks or even as a quick pick-me-up. Don't eat cherries and drive!

I do this all the time! Grandma taught me to do this--it works with just about any liquor that you want to use and they always turn out fantastic. You can use a Ball Jar also, if you prefer. I like to use the infused vodka either as a base for drinks (along with the cherries) or as a flavoring for baked goods.

These cherries pack a punch! I tried one this morning, and it was yummy! I plan to bake with them. They'd be great with a pina colada or served over vanilla ice cream! I substituted Amaretto for whiskey because it's what I had on hand and the almond flavor is a good compliment for cherries.

I made my own versions of these for Christmas time. I used my favourite scotch whiskey and another batch using cherry brandy. I used the ones in scotch whiskey on ice cream and the brandy soaked ones in black forest cupcakes in place of the cherry topping which is sometimes "spiked" with kirsch liqueur. This is a nice alternative to plain cherries and can easily work with your favourite liqueurs. But I'd limit the taste combos with certain liqueurs, cause it can be a bad combo or too strong tasting.
