Tart Cherry Liqueur Sundae

Cherries are divided into two categories: sweet cherries and tart cherries. Sweet cherries are far more popular and are the type of cherry that people eat uncooked. Tart cherries are best in cooked applications, and in this case, are also great for making liqueur. I used a tart cherry liqueur from Leopold Brothers, a Denver-based distillery that specializes in making this delicious concoction, in a simple classic dessert: a sundae.

Cherry Shopping Tip

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
