Cherry Bounce Cordial Recipe – A Boxing Day Tradition

Cherry Bounce Cordial Recipe - Boxing Day on Nevis
Cherry Bounce Cordial Aged To Perfection

Cherry Bounce Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh cherries, washed and dried
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • peel of 1 lemon
  • 3 cups Kentucky Bourbon (#ad) (or enough to cover) ((I Like Jim Beam))

Cooking Method:

  1. Place the cherries in a 1 quart glass container, being careful not to crush the fruit.
  2. Add the sugar and the lemon peel.
  3. Fill the container with the bourbon.
  4. Seal the lid and gently shake the jar, or move it around the counter to distribute the alcohol and sugar evenly.
  5. The sugar will continue to dissolve over time.
  6. Place the cherry bounce cordial in a cool, dark place for 2 months to allow the liquor to be infused with the flavor.
  7. Jump start the process by placing the container in the Nevis sun for the first few days (I Wish).

Serving Suggestions:

Serve in a cordial glass (#ad), with a cheese and fruit platter.
