Cherry Tequila

Ah Tequila,  We have drifted apart over the past 20 years. You use to be cute little shots on a raucous Friday evening. Now you are only used in Margaritas. A bottle will last me a year or two.  It is time to become reacquainted again. I was eating a bowl of fresh cherries last week and thought. hmmmm..

Cherry Tequila

1/2 cup of silver tequila

20  fresh cherries halved and pitted

2 tsp of sugar.

1 tsp of grated  fresh ginger.

Let sit for 3 days in the fridge.   Strain tequila into another cup muddle the cherries. Pour tequila back over the muddled cherries.

Keep in the fridge until ready to use.

  1. when infusing the tequila, do you pop it in the fried, or just covered (uncovered?) at room temp??? I picked up a bottle of Cazadores to give this a try.

    1. Sorry my recipie was a quickie.. I updated it to reflect. Please infuse in the fridge. I don’t think bacteria would grow in that much liquor but…. Safety first.

      1. I should have figured. an hour or two shouldn’t kill me. I tripled the recipe (less ginger, until found) tastes great already….

  2. This was soooo good, i am making some more. need more tequila for more of this in the future, and will start w/o the ginger (like last time) and add it in tomorrow. ) *maybe add triple sec to the drink recipie.
