GINUARY BONUS TIP: Boozy Cocktail Cherry Recipe

It’s super easy to whip up a batch of Wendy’s boozy, sweet cocktail cherries. Practice now and when summer comes and the markets are full of baskets of cherries, you’ll be able to whip up bowls full. (We’ve always thought the saying should be life is just a bowl of BOOZY cherries!)

Check out Wendy’s full post for more ways to use these easy treats. You’ll even learn to make your own cherry pitter from a fork (because the hardest part of this recipe is pitting the cherries.)
