Višnjak (Sour Cherry Liqueur)

Place a kilo and a half of unpitted ripe sour cherries in a glass jar. Add two kilos of sugar and fill it to the brim with grappa. Cap with a tight lid. Place it on the sun to macerate for 40 days. Stir daily the first days until sugar dissolved. Take away from the sunny place, strain and pour in bottles. This delicious beverage is ready to drink. The fruits from grappa are also tasty and may be used in cakes.

Višnjak is mainly lady’s drink recommended to taste as a welcome aperitif.
