Aging, Straining, And Drinking Your Cherry Infused Brandy

Let your liqueur age/steep for 5 weeks in a cool dark place, agitating daily for the first week to make sure all the sugar dissolved usually takes about a week.

After aging/steeping process strain the liquid and fruit through several layers of cheesecloth.

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

Once you get to the point of 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 you can strain your Thyme Pear Liqueur one more time through a coffee strainer.
