Home > Cherry Schnapps
Cherry schnapps - based on wild, dark coloured or black cherries - has a beautiful colour and a rich, wonderful and liqueur-like taste with hint of almond.
Serve with desserts, ice creams, pies, cheese and cheese cakes - or add a little schnapps to your fruit sauces, jams and marmalades.
Very fine as after-dinner drink - or turned into a liqueur.
Blends very well with...
For best result, use whole wild cherries - or whole sour or tart cherries (Prunus cerasus).
You can use common garden cherries.
But you get a much better result with wild cherries - and even better if you use the small, dark coloured or black ones. They are much more aromatic.
The cherries must be fully ripe and juicy before you pick them.
You can serve your cherry schnapps after it has settled for a couple of days - it has a wonderful taste.
Or you can store (age) it for a month or longer in a dark place at room temperature before serving.
Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your infusion, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.
Serve your cherry schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
