Ah, yes, when did IT all start for La Diva?
Here’s what I did:
- Buy 1.75 liters of an inexpensive whiskey. Not scotch though as scotch has too much of a strong, smoky taste. I used Early Times bourbon.
- Pour into a large container. I use a plastic container with a lid and spigot (for easy tasting!)
- Wash a pound or so of fresh, ripe sweet black cherries. I cut them in half to help release their juices. I didn’t take out the pits.
- Leave in the back of the refrigerator for two weeks. Try to position it so it’s out of sight otherwise stray deejays will sample the product every day and you’ll be left with none to make drinky-poos with at the end of it’s curing time.
- After two weeks, drink!
La Diva’s Cherry Bourbon Lime Sour cocktail:
In a shaker filled with ice pour:
2 oz. cherry-infused bourbon
1 heaping teaspoon powdered sugar
1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
1 dash of egg white
So tell La Diva, darlings, what would YOU do with this divine cherry-infused bourbon? Or better yet…when did YOU have your first drink of alcohol?
