Back in the summer I showed you how to make Vodka Cherry Bounce while cherries were in season. If you haven’t made any yet, you still can! However, you’ll need to buy frozen organic sweet cherries and remember to make sure you let the Vodka Cherry Bounce sit for at least 4 weeks.
What you will need if you’d like to bottle your Vodka Cherry Bounce:
- clean, empty bottles
- contact paper
- skill knife
- glass etching cream (I bought mine at Michael’s with a 50% off coupon)
Here is how I bottled the Vodka Cherry Bounce for gifts.
I used empty maple syrup bottles. Don’t they look a bit like flasks?
Score the label and soak the bottle in hot water to easily remove the label.
Next, draw whatever you’d like to put on the bottle on a piece of contact paper. I chose to draw a cherry. Make sure it will fit in the area you want it to.
Cut the pattern out with a skill knife.
Stick the contact paper pattern to the bottle.
Apply glass etching cream according to the package directions. This is nasty stuff. Be sure to wear plastic gloves!
Wash it off and you have your finished bottle. Fill the bottle with the Vodka Cherry Bounce using a funnel. Discard cherries – they have soaked up so much alcohol they are horrible!
Present as gifts and hope who ever you present your gift to offers to share!
