Spiked Cherries make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
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!
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:
Chocolate-Covered Spiked Cherry
- 2 oz Cherry vodka (I used HOLLA Spirits Cherry It!)
- 1 oz creme de cacao
- 1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate liqeuer
- splash of Spiked Cherry juice
- HERSHEY’S Chocolate Syrup
- Spiked Cherries, to garnish
Dip the rim of the glass in chocolate syrup, or drizzle the bottom of the glass with syrup. Combine vodka, creme de cacao, Godiva, and cherry juice in a shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake ’til cold. Strain into glass. Garnish with cherries!
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).
