Tipsy Cherries

Not to be confused with my Drunk Cherries, Tipsy Cherries are a combination of simple syrup and a touch of liquor and can be canned using a hot water bath and stored outside of the refrigerator.

They are a great addition to cocktails or would make a great gift - maybe with a nice bottle of liquor??

Tipsy Cherries


Pitted sour cherries
Simple Syrup (2 parts water/1 part sugar)

Per 8 oz jar:

1 tbsp liquor
1 tsp sugar (if you'd like them more tart, you can omit)


1.  Prepare canning jars, lids, and rings.  Bring hot water batch canner to a boil.

2.  Fill jars with pitted sour cherries tapping them as you go to ensure they are packed tight and settled, leaving 1/2 inch headspace at the top.

3.  Once the jar is full, add the liquor and sugar and top off with the simple syrup.  Place the lid and ring on top and set aside.

4.  Once all jars are filled and the canner water is boiling, carefully set the jars into the boiling water.  Cover with a lid and process for 10 minutes. 

5.  Remove the jars and allow to seal.  Once the jars are sealed and at room temperature, remove the rings, label, and store.
