Aging, Straining, And Blending Your Cherry Bark Bitters Liqueur Recipe

Store in a cool, dark place for 7 days, giving each jar a good shake daily to help along the infusing process.

After 7 days strain with a cheesecloth Jar number 1.

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

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

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.

Wait another 5 days, and repeat the above straining method for Jar 2 and jar 3 combining them both through straining them and putting them together in one jar.

Let infuse for another 3 days and then finally combined what is now jar 2-3 and jar 1.

When blending add the rye in slowly and keep tasting some peaple prefer to go easy on the rye.

Once you find a combination you like, strain the mixture again to remove any last sediment.
