A few tips on infusions from the experts

Cherries are ideal for fruit infused spirits because they are dense with flavor and color. At Zuri, we've found that five days is the perfect amount of time to allow the rum to pull all the flavor and color from the cherries.

When making an infusion, we suggest you use a container (or vessel) with a mouth wide enough to fit your hand in. Always pack the fruit to within an inch of the top of the container and cover the fruit entirely with alcohol (this prevents the fruit from oxidizing). When dealing with cherries, its best to pit them first as pits can impart a bitter flavor. At Zuri, we use fresh frozen, pitted cherries to ensure consistency from batch to batch, but we recommend using fresh cherries if you're dealing with limited quantities.

I liked this. A bit different. I didn't have cherry rum so I added a tbsp. of grenadine. I like the lime as it offsets the sweetness of the grenadine. Very nice. I used Captain's Tattoo Rum. This is like nothing I've had before. I think I like it. It's potent for sure. Read More

Served them at a dinner party for 8 Saturday night! Everybody loved them! Only change I made was I did not infuse the cherries into rum and used a little extra rum... tossed scoops of washed seeded and halved cherries into the blender with ice and rest of the ingredients and got wonderful frozen cherry daiquiris! Will definitely make again with fruits in season! Thanks for a terrific recipe...they kept the party going until dinner was served which was by the way peppered chicken breasts with cherry wine sauce! Read More

This was really good. I took Lovin' Life Foodie's advice and threw pitted cherries rum and lime juice into a blender with ice. I also subbed grenadine instead of sugar to give it more color and garnished it with a freshly picked cherry. Read More
