30 fresh sweet cherries, pitted
2 cups bourbon (I used Jack Daniels)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup milk chocolate
1/4 cup white chocolate (optional; for decoration)
Place cherries in a bowl or pitcher, add sugar, then bourbon, and stir until sugar dissolves. Soak for at least 2 hours and up to overnight, stirring occasionally.
When nearly ready to serve, remove cherries from the liquor. Reserve the bourbon and place the cherries on paper towels to drain.
Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave or with a double broiler. Dip each cherry in the chocolate, then lay on wax paper to dry. If desired, drizzle with an alternating color of chocolate for decoration.
To serve, pour cherry infused bourbon over ice and garnish with several of the chocolate covered bourbon infused cherries. Cheers!
