Pitted Fresh Cherries, Bourbon, Decarbed Cannabis

I’m a bit of an evangelist when it comes to homemade cocktail cherries. They’re far, far superior to those red things that come in jars.

Ingredients

1 bottle (750 ml) of bourbon whiskey
8 grams of decarbed cannabis
2 pounds (910 g) pitted fresh cherries

Preparation: How to make a Greenish Cocktail Cherries

  1. Infuse the whiskey with the cannabis following the instructions on page 34.
  2. Place the pitted cherries in a large mason jar, then cover with the infused whiskey.
  3. Store the jar in a cool, dark place, such as a cellar or refrigerator, for 1 month, shaking the jar daily.
  4. Don’t be afraid to store these outside the fridge at cellar temperature: nothing bad will happen if you do.
  5. Use as called for in cocktails and mocktails.
