Cherry Bounce

  • Author: Alex Morgan


Cherry Bounce, a cherished Southern delicacy, embodies the rich flavors of fresh cherries and smooth bourbon.


  • 1 pound fresh cherries, stemmed and pitted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) bourbon


  1. Preparation: Begin by ensuring your cherries are stemmed and pitted, ready to infuse their sweet essence into the bourbon.
  2. Create the Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and water. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar completely dissolves, creating a simple syrup. Remove from heat and let the syrup cool slightly.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Place the prepared cherries in a large glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Pour the sugar syrup over the cherries, followed by the bourbon, ensuring they are completely submerged.
  4. Infusion Process: Seal the jar tightly and give it a gentle shake to ensure the ingredients are well combined. Store the jar in a cool, dark place for a minimum of 2 weeks, allowing the flavors to meld together. Remember to give it a gentle shake every few days to encourage infusion.
  5. Strain and Bottle: After 2 weeks of patiently waiting, strain the cherry bounce through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into clean glass bottles or jars. Discard the cherries or save them for another culinary creation.
  6. Storage: Seal the bottles or jars tightly and store your homemade cherry bounce in a cool, dark place until you’re ready to indulge in its flavorful depths.
