Cherry Bounce

  • 1 gallon wild cherries
  • Whiskey
  • Water
  • White sugar
Add enough whiskey to cover the wild cherries. Let it soak for 2-3 weeks and then drain off the liquor. Mash the cherries without breaking the stones. Strain through a jelly-bag. Add this liquor to that already drained off.

Make a syrup with 1/2 cup of water and a pound of white sugar to every 2 quarts of liquor. Stir well into the liquor. Bottle and tightly cork.

A common way of making Cherry Bounce is to place the wild cherries and whiskey together in a jug and use the liquor as needed.
