Vishnevka is an old-fashioned drink popular in Eastern Europe. It takes me right back to when I was a child and those fancy Christmas cherry liqueur chocolates would come out…
This is basic and easy to make recipe. You can use vodka or brandy. Be patient- it takes about 45 days to make, but you won’t regret it!
Rich, fragrant, smooth, sweet, irresistible…


• Sour pitted dry cherries- 600 g
• Orange peel- 5 g
• Cinnamon stick- ½ (regular size)
• Almonds (raw)- 20 g
• Clove- 2 pieces
• Brandy or Vodka- 1 liter (I prefer Brandy- it makes Vishnevka rich and smooth)

Combine all ingredients in large jar, cover with tight lid and let it sit in cool dry place 40-45 days. Shake every 3-4 days. Do not open jar- you can introduce mold inside the product.
When done- drain through strainer, add sugar to taste and enjoy!
You can eat cherries but beware- you will get drunk quick






Tangy yet sweet, wonderfully delicious loquat fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants.

Wash loquats



Make 4 incisions on each fruit (see image below)

The best Vodka for this infusion- Japanese Haku rice Vodka (but regular can work too).


Let it sit in cool place, away from sunlight, for 8-14 days. Start to sample on day 8.  Spirit should be a fragrant but not bitter. If it turns out bitter- no worries. Just add some sake to relieve bitterness.
