    I found this one online:

    Macerated Cherries

    use sour cherries only, fresh when you can get them (wash them first), dried otherwise. The dried won't look quite as nice, though they will plump up some. Store them in a lidded jar in the fridge, covered with some naked (unsugared, unwatered) distilled spirit: I have used brandy and Maraschino liqueur at different times to good effect. A week or so of maceration is all you need.

    RUM CHERRIES

    just get plain cherries in the jar (with stems). drain 1/3 of the juice out of the cherries and fill back up with bacardi 151 rum. put in refrigerator and let sit for 2 - 5 days. the longer they sit, the better they are!


    ENJOY!

    I ran across this thread while searching for a recipe for those marvelous cherries. Here is what I have...

    We frequent a local restaurant and have become friendly with one of the head waiters (it's the gratuitous tip, I'm sure), he serves us very well, I couldn't hire a butler to do better. I always order a "Top Shelf, on the Rocks" Margarita. After we became "regulars" and developed a rapport with him, one evening he brought us these "cherries" as a bonus to our meal and drinks. He brought a separate cup for our very underage son and made it clear he is not to eat ours (wink, wink). My wife and I both like cherries and not really getting the hint we tasted the cherries, They were "Borracho" which means drunk in Spanish. Wholly Moley, those things were absolutely great. So after eating there for several years now, a few times back I asked, "what do y'all do to these cherries?" He sat down and leaned over that table like he was divulging a national secret or something and said "We take all of the liquor leftover from the bottles in the bar and pour it in a 5 gallon bucket with the cherries and just let them soak, when the cherries get low we add more, but every night we add the liquor from the bar, Rum, Scotch, Tequila, Bourbon, Triple Sec, Gran Marnier, Cointreau, Whatever, it all goes into the bucket and gets stirred in". We have noticed that sometimes the cherries are sweeter some times and more "Pepper" hot other times, but we still enjoy them none the less.. Matter of fact I just finished the last of the four that I brought home tonight in my last Margarita that I always sm***le out in a to go cup and bring it home. Yes, I broke the law by leaving the premises with an alcoholic beverage, I had a designated driver and didn't give it to a minor.

    So, there is my story about "Borracho Cherries" or "Drunk Cherries" or "Cherries in Alcohol", hope it helps you find what you are looking for, were trying it at home ourselves although we don't have the remnants from a bar to utilize, but I have invested a fifth of Patron Gold, Courvoisier Brandy, Cointreau, Pampero Ron Anejo Aniversario Rum, and Gentleman Jack Bourbon to our mix to see if we can reproduce the same effect at home.
