Cherry Whiskey (Vyshnivka)

MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: Olha
Recipe Category: Beverage
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
    from Festive Ukrainian Cooking

    4 pounds unpitted ripe cherries
    2 pounds sugar
    2 small pieces of cinnamon
    1 nutmeg
    2 cups heavy sugar syrup ( about equal portions of sugar and water)
    2 cups grain alcohol (optional)

    Scald a large crock.
    Wash cherries, place in crock,
    Pour sugar over cherries and add cinnamon and nutmeg.
    Cover with cheesecloth and let stand in a warm place for 2 weeks or so until liquid begins to clear.

    Strain through a fresh piece of cheesecloth, pour off into a large glass container and add syrup (as desired). Add grain alcohol for a stronger drink.

    Pour into scalded bottles, cork, store in a cool, dark place, and allow to ferment 4 to 6 weeks.

    The yield depends on the water content of the fruit and the rate of evaporation.

    Serve in liqueur glasses. ENJOY.
