Homemade Bourbon Infused Cherries

I absolutely love homemade gifts during the holidays. Creating Bourbon infused cherries is an easy and beautiful gift idea. You can add this to an event gift bag, as a special addition to a “Manhattan Kit” or if you’re planning a wedding this would be a great homemade gift for your bridal party.

Whatever your use, I can guarantee its a simple and unique addition to your friend or family’s bar this year.


1 cup of your favorite Bourbon

2/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tsp of orange juice

1/2 lb of pitted cherries

In a medium size sauce pan, combine the bourbon, sugar, vanilla and orange juice. Place the ingredients over medium to medium-high heat and whisk continuously until the sugar has fully dissolved. Combine the mixture with the cherries. Cool in a separate container and once they have fully cooled move into the refrigerator. I recommend leaving them to infuse for at least 3-5 days before use.

3 Bourbon Cocktails You Need to Serve at Your Next Party

Bourbon cocktails are no stranger to Nashville, and we have to admit this beautiful dark liquor is a favorite of ours. We have three easy-to-make, crowd pleasing recipes that are sure to be the center of attention at your next party. Or let’s be real…great for a relaxing evening alone too!


Rose Hip Bourbon Sour

1.5 oz Rose Hip Infused Bourbon

.75 oz Solerno

.5 oz Lemon Juice

.5 oz Simple Syrup

Top with Club Soda

Garnish with Edible Flower or Rose hip

In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients, give it a good shake and pour over ice. Add a garnish that matches your color scheme for a little pop. We kept it simple and elegant by adding a little bit of Mountain Rose Herbs, which we also used to infuse the Bourbon.

Apply Ever After

2 oz Bourbon

.5 oz Rosemary Simple Syrup

.5 oz Lime Juice

3 oz Apple Juice

Garnish with a Fresh Sprig of Rosemary

This cocktail is just such a perfect fall treat. Just shake all the ingredients and pour over ice. To garnish add a little rosemary sprig.

To create our ‘rosemary simple syrup’ boil equal parts water and sugar over medium-high heat. Make sure to keep watch as to not burn the sugar. After the sugar is fully dissolved, add a few sprigs of rosemary and let steep for about 15 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy!

Maple Bourbon Fizz

1.5 oz Bourbon

.75 oz Lemon Juice

.75 oz Maple Cinnamon Simple Syrup

Top with Soda Water

Garnish with Cinnamon Stick

If we thought about what fall would taste like in drink form, this would be it!

To create our ‘maple cinnamon simple syrup’ boil water, cinnamon and clove for about 15 minutes. Let the ingredients steep as it cools for an additional 15 minutes. Strain out the cinnamon and clove, then add an equal amount of maple syrup to the water that’s left. Greatest part about this, it’ll make your house smell just as amazing as the Maple Bourbon Fizz tastes.
