Drink of the Week: DIY Cherry Bounce

It’s no secret that we’re smitten with cherries. In our current issue we offer up three different cocktail recipes calling for one of our favorite summertime fruits, and even though the season is starting to slow, we’re not quite ready to say goodbye. Which is where today’s Drink of the Week comes in. Dating back to Martha Washington’s day, cherry bounce was a colonial favorite for infusing the plump, juicy ripeness of cherries into a spirit, with just the right amount of sugar—and it’s as easy to make as it sounds. Click here for the recipe and sip summer-ripened cherries long after the season has passed.
