Directions:
Wash and pick over cherries, removing stems, then drain. Pour moist cherries into a half-gallon jug. Pour 1/2 c. sugar over moist cherries, then shake until cherries are coated. Pour remaining sugar on top of cherries. Do not mix. Place cap on jug loosely to prevent pressure build-up. Let stand until sugar melts on top of cherries. Stir by revolving jug. Repeat until all sugar is dissolved. Let stand for 2 months.
Pour bourbon over cherries and close jug tightly. Let stand for 3 or 4 months. During the 3 month period, revolve the jug occasionally. Strain through cheesecloth and pour into bottles.
(A 3 liter coke bottle works well if you don't have a jug.)

Personal Notes:
I got this from a Tony Chachere's cookbook. A co-worker says this is just the thing to cure a cold and keep it away. Just 1 shot before bed a couple of nights.
