I am a Manhattan fan - on the dry side, please! I came up with this idea when my husband was on a kick of making infused vodkas. Not so sweet as maraschino cherries, for those of us who like the 'dry side'! Use in Manhattans as you would maraschino cherries.

Have been making these for decades - sometimes I add in a vanilla bean lavender or fresh herbs. And use fresh pitted cherries in season. Let them sit 6 months and they are outstanding in baked goods and cocktails! Read More
