How To Make tipsy cherries (using jarred maraschino cherries)

  • 1
    Drain half of the juice from cherries. Top off the cherries and juice with your favorite liquor. Refrigerate. That's it! Ready to eat in a few hours, but they get better as they sit for a day or two. If you find they are too strong or too weak, you can adjust with reserved cherry juice or more liquor.
