Limoncello Cocktail Cherries
The View From the Great Island
Summer cocktails call for summer cherries, and these Limoncello Cocktail Cherries are so good you almost don’t need the cocktail at all!
- note: the amounts will vary depending on how many cherries you have.
- fresh cherries, washed and pitted
- (wash it first)
- Layer your cherries into a clean jar or jars, along with the lemon zest. Fit the cherries into the jar as tightly as possible without squishing them too much, you don't want mangled cherries in your drinks.
- Fill the jar to the brim with Limoncello, making sure to completely cover the cherries. Cap tightly and refrigerate. You can eat them right away, but they are best after a couple of days of soaking, at least. And they just keep getting better.
