“Use this quick syrup to make fresh cherry colas or Old Fashioned cocktails. From Bon Appetite. I love great, tart cherries!!!!!”
READY IN:
5mins
YIELD:
3 cups
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb cherries, fresh stemmed and pitted (frozen, thawed with juice, I'm going to try dried and rehydrate them)
  • 1 cup sugar

Directions

  1. Using a muddler or potato masher, smash cherries and sugar in a medium bowl to release juices (it's okay to leave some cherries whole). Stir in 3/4 cup hot water. Let stand until slightly cooled, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Cover and chill. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 week ahead. Keep chilled.
  2. Strain syrup before using, reserving cherries for garnish.
