   Cherry schnapps - based on wild, dark colored or black cherries - has a beautiful color and a rich, wonderful and liqueur-like taste with hint of almond. Serve with desserts, ice creams, pies, cheese and cheese cakes - or add a little schnapps to your fruit sauces, jams and marmalades. Very fine as after-dinner drink.
Cherry Schnapps
Ingredients:


Cherries
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
Instructions:
Rinse the cherries carefully. Leave them to dry in the shadow - on paper towel. Use a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Fill 2/3 of the jar with whole cherries. If you want a more prominent almond flavour you can add a few broken cherry pits (place the pits in a clean cloth and hit with a hammer). Fill up with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Steep for at least 3 months in a dark place at room temperature,18-20C (64-68F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid.
