Spiked Cherries: The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Spiked Cherries | Stocking Stuffer | Gift Guide 2020

Howie’s Spiked Cherries make the perfect stocking stuffer for the 21+ set.

These colossal cherries are infused with booze for a delicious adult treat.

Original Spiked Cherries are perfectly sweet, while the Balls of Fire are infused with cinnamon (an adult version of Valentine’s Day Red Hots, anyone?).

Either version makes a great addition to many cocktails and desserts.

Or, do like my husband does, and just squirt some Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup in your mouth, then pop-in one of these boozy cherries for an instant chocolate-covered cherry!

Spiked Cherries | Original | Balls of Fire

Instantly elevate your cocktail!

At-home bartending doesn’t quite hit the same, and maybe that’s because we rarely take time to garnish our cocktails the way a professional would take care to do.

With Spiked Cherries, you’re that much closer to cocktail bliss.

Try this at-home recipe:

Yuletide Mule

  • 1.5 oz cherry vodka (We like HOLLA Spirits Cherry It!)
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 6 oz ginger beer
  • Sprig of rosemary
  • Spiked Cherries Original

Place rosemary sprig in a highball glass (or copper cup) filled with ice. Add vodka and cranberry juice, then top with ginger beer. Put three cherries on a toothpick and add to cocktail. Voila!

Spiked Cherries also make a perfect addition to a classic Manhattan or adult milkshake.

A number of friends and family are getting these adults-only cherries in their stockings this year.

If you know anyone who loves to get creative with their desserts and cocktails — or just loves to enjoy a sweet (or spicy!) treat straight from the jar, these are your surprise gift win. We keep a jar in the fridge at all times (see above instant chocolate-covered cherry trick).

Find Spiked Cherries at many local beer distributors, and Spiked Cherries also can be ordered directly online.

Stay tuned for why these boozy cherries are a must-have on my bar cart!
