My very first blog post on July 2, 2011, was about making Cherry Bounce. After the cherries, honey and bourbon were mixed, it was supposed to be kept in a cool place for approximately six months. I figured that Christmas Day was close enough to six months for me to give it a try!

It is suggested that it be drank neat, so that is what we tried. My husband says that it tastes like medicine, but I think that it is sweet and smooth. I am a huge fan of Cherry Dr. Pepper and what would make more sense than to mix some of the Cherry Bounce with it?! Very yummy indeed.

That is why the jar is covered with condensation..
Since the recipe also mentions putting some of the cherries over ice cream, I thought that I would give one of the cherries a taste. Ooooooo-WEEEEE! That was a STRONG cherry! Perhaps if the cherries were chopped up and then put on the ice cream, it might be pretty good.
Over all, I would give Cherry Bounce two thumbs up!
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.
