Ditch the dayglo maraschinos and make these easy and luscious homemade cocktail cherries. Fresh pitted cherries marinate in a mixture of cherry brandy and Amaretto, with a splash of tart pomegranate juice for color.
These canned sweet cherries are so elegant. They're not too sweet, and the flavor is fantastic with a touch of brandy and vanilla bean. Delicious right from the jar or in cocktails, and the syrup makes the most stunning red cherry-vanilla sodas.
