Cherry Liqueur

The seeds of apricot, peach, almond, bitter almond, plums, cherries, almost all stone fruits, by adding sugar - alcohol and following the procedure, become delicious, homemade liqueurs.

This liqueur began as a pilot project, starting with my Internet-based tours. Source of inspiration was the Ratafia, a traditional sweet drink of Catalan cuisine, tailored to … my alchemy.

Despite the experimental nature of the original plan despite the theories of liqueur, which bypassed during preparation, the result was special, unique in color and fragrant.

Impressed with the color, that it began to take, almost from the first week of preparation, without blur, and gradually became more beautiful. Even when added the syrup it remained bright and amber.

Keep therefore the seeds of cherries and create your own liqueur.
