Cherry Vodka recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Jazz up your drinks cabinet with this sweet and refreshing take on vodka. Vodka is combined with cherries and sugar to create a sweet, cherry-infused liquor that's perfect for mixing with lemonade or serving over ice.


  • 700ml vodka
  • 400g cherries
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 150ml water


  1. Remove the stems from the cherries and make a slit in each. Remove the stone if you like.

  2. Place the cherries into a pan with the sugar and water. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves and the cherries start to soften.

  3. Decant the cherry mix into a large glass bottle and add the vodka. Seal, shake well to mix and leave to sit for at least four weeks before serving.

If you like, add some lemon juice or lime juice to make this into a sour cherry liquor.
