Rum-med Cherries

Filed under: , [Edit Tags]

Created by yours truly as the garnish for a drink for a Havana Club cocktail competition which I didn't even compete in.

Rum-med Cherries

  • ½ cup soft demerara sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 50ml fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • Half a scored vanilla pod
  • 1 pound sweet pitted cherries (Bing)
  • 1 cup aged rum

Wash and pit cherries.  In a saucepan, combine all ingredients except the cherries and rum and bring to the boil.  When liquid begins to boil, reduce heat to a light simmer, add cherries and simmer for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat, add rum and cool immediately.  Transfer cooled cherries and liquid to clean glass jars and refrigerate.

How long will these keep in the fridge?

I've had some in the fridge for about 5 months now and they're still good.
