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.
- 2 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
- Shaved dark chocolate, for garnish
- 2 Tablespoons Michigan tart cherry liqueur, such as Leopold Brothers
Place glasses in the freezer for 5 minutes. Scoop the ice cream into the glasses and pour the liqueur over the ice cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings.
