I make these at Christmas but I ran out of booze and time. I needed to run to the store and get the cherries and brandy. But you need to let them soak for hours. So after a quick run to the store I sat in the parking lot of the grocery store pouring brandy into my cherry jar and ran around to finish christmas shopping all day. Glad the police were busy that day.
