Cherry Liqueur #1

Drink Type: Punch



Pierce each cherry several times each, so that its flesh comes in contact with the alcohol mixture. Put the pricked cherries in a jar with the powdered sugar sprinkled over them. Add the brandy and the vodka - if the cherries are not covered, add a little more brandy until they are. Close the jar well, store in a warm place, about 27 C, and let the mixture set for about six weeks. Pour off the liquid, and extract any additional liquid you can from the cherries. Add the mace and the sugar syrup, shake well, and filter through a cloth if necessary to get any remaining fruit particles out.
