Bourbon Cherry Cocktail

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this enough, but my friend Lori makes some amazing things (mustards, spreads, sauces, etc) at her company Taste Elevated. One of my *favorite* products of hers is the Booze Thyme Cherries. They are fantastic with all kinds of cheeses, meats, etc. And when they’re gone, there is this amazing boozy cherry liquid left over! So, what to do? Make a cocktail with it, of course!

Lori told me that a new bar in the St. Anthony hotel in downtown San Antonio had started to make a cocktail with the juice from the Booze Thyme Cherries, and she and her husband tried it. They liked it so much that they got the recipe, and she shared it with me! We love it so much that we sometimes eat most of the cherries so we have the juice left over, just to make this cocktail! Enjoy!
