Utensils Tips

Here is a list of the simplest utensils that you can use; the ones Mom should already have in the kitchen:)


– cheesecloth
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for bottling and serving, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 

  • Place the ingredients into your glass container. Add the whiskey making sure that all the ingredients are fully submerged, and close the container.

Aging, Straining, filtering, and Drinking Your Cherry Vanilla Bitters Liqueur Recipe

Shake well and store away from sunlight in a cool and dry place 3 months, agitate occasionally.

After 3 months of aging, strain your liqueur through several layers of cheesecloth.

It always helps when you moisten the cheesecloth first, it enables the liquid to permeate more smoothly saving you some precious liqueur.

Once you get to the point where you have strained everything out, you can gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to strain your liqueur further due to lack of clarity, you can strain it 1 more time through a coffee strainer.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Cherry Vanilla Bitters Liqueur Recipe!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!

Notes on Utensils and Ingredients
