Cherry Whiskey

Cherry Whiskey
Mrs. Spence.

Take eight quarts of fine ripe cherries; put them into a jar, then pour over them six quarts of either good whiskey or brandy; let it stand for a month, then take out the fruit, bruise it in a mortar, put it back into the liquor, and let it stand another month; strain off the liquor, and to every quart add three-quarters of a pound of loaf sugar; let it stand to settle and cool; when quite cold bottle and cork well.  Excellent, and improves by keeping.
