Why We’re declaring February:
National Cherry Bounce Month
Hints: George Washington and Chocolate
“I want the ‘The Cherry Thing’, Cherry Bling, Cherry Whisky, Cherry Bourbon.” Whatever it is you call it (’cause we’ve heard all the names) it’s Cherry Bounce, our 17th century cordial that you are talking about. It’s our most popular product and people seem to just love it. We love it and for that reason and more we think February should hereby be known as “Cherry Bounce Month”.
Reason #1 – Everyone knows the story of “George Washington and the Cherry Tree”, ” I cannot tell a lie….” and so forth. Well, that story was actually completely made up by his first biographer, but, this story is true. Martha Washington made Cherry Bounce for George and it was a favorite of his. It’s true it’s in her cookbook and there’s documentation on him taking on many trips away from Mt. Vernon where there was in fact a cherry orchard. February is also his birthday month, the 15th to be exact.
Reason #2: It’s Valentine’s Day on the 14th and Cherry Bounce goes really well with all that chocolate you are about to have around the house. I’m not talking it’s kinda good with it I’m saying it delicious. Only all-natural cherries are used in our products creating a delicious concoction that just wraps itself around any chocolate goodness. Just a few ideas, hot chocolate with cherry bounce, chocolate waffles/ pancakes for breakfast in bed. How about chocolate ice cream topped with Cherry Bounce or a mixture of CB and as a nightcap. Chocolate shot glasses??? Yep, we have those.
Reason#3: For that special drink or for a non-chocolate option, put it in champagne, a mule, a Manhattan, rum, and “cherry” coke? it’s good in all of it.
Reason#4: Cherries are shaped like hearts! what a perfect fit for the month.
So as you can see it’s the perfect fit for a drink of the month. Grab yourself a bottle Today.

Have some time and smoker? Try our Smoked Cherry Bounce Drunken Bacon here: https://wp.me/p9HnVy-SrD
It’s Easter Sunday and things are a little more relaxed around here for a change. (Ya’ll are keeping us busy! Thank you!) With the warm weather and a little extra time I decided to fire up the smoker and smoke my own pork loin over buying a ham this year. Just trying to spice up Easter dinner a bit. In that interest, looking around the fridge I saw a half a pack of uncured bacon sitting in the meat drawer and was inspired to pull it out to marry it with our main dish somehow.
I’ve done double smoked bacon before, using a sweet coating to jazz it up and get that lovely sweet /salty thing going on. I’ve used maple syrup as a marinade, brown sugar/sriracha and a couple other combos that came out pretty well, but I wanted something different. Looking around the kitchen I scanned the room a few times, looked in the pantry and at the mish-mash of jams, sauces and dressings in the fridge, then in my BBQ closet a red label caught my eye. Eureka! There it was, cherry woodchips that I had soaking in a bit of Christmas City Spirits 100% Barley Whiskey batch #2 for several months. I ran for the Christmas City Spirits Cherry Bounce in the liquor cabinet, looked at it and I said, “Well, why the hell not???” The cordial is made with whole natural dark sweet cherries, tart cherry juice and a hint of spice (not to mention the alcohol). How could that combo go wrong?
So three hours later these lightly candied magical wands of pork belly were ready and are truly unbelievable…. sweet, salty, smoky with a hint of fruit. I think you could just eat them straight and be perfectly happy but other thoughts would be to chop them up into a tasty salad topper or addition to a mustard sauce for pork or chicken. Hell, you could even use these a the best swizzle stick you’ve ever had for a Mount Vernon Manhattan (recipe Below).
It’s not really a recipe as it’s not very complicated, more or a short set of instructions to create these:
Time required: 3 Hours
6 Rashers (1/2 lbs) Uncured Bacon
2oz Christmas City Spirits Cherry Bounce
4oz of Cherry Woodchips soaked in whiskey (preferably Christmas City Spirits 100% Barley Whiskey batch #2)
2oz Mesquite Wood Chunk that is soaked in water
1.) Soak your Mesquite in water and add a little water to the Whiskey Soaked Cherry Chips.
2.) Put bacon in a medium bowl and top with the Cherry Bounce, mixing lightly with you hand to coat them
3.) Turn over the bacon every 15 mins for an hour to recoat all the rashers and get that bacon good and drunk on Cherry bounce
4.) Prepare your smoker to 225F, put wood chunk/chips in to get it smoking per you smokers direction
5.) Place bacon in smoker in a single layer, save excess cherry bounce on bowl
6.) Smoke for 2 hours, baste lightly every 30 minutes with remain cherry bounce.
7.) Enjoy with pretty much anything including as a swizzle stick for a Mount Vernon Manhattan
Mount Vernon Manhatten:
1oz Christmas City Spirits Cherry Bounce
1 dash of bitters
Dark Cherry Garnish
