EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you cannot find fresh cherries, you can substitute frozen. Be sure they are thawed completely and drained of excess liquid before using.

Cognac can be substituted for the brandy.

When the cherries have been eaten, use the remaining brandy-flavored liquid in cocktails.
