Cherry Vanilla Infused Rum – recipe by Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

9 ounces Shellback Silver Rum

35 Fresh Cherries – Pitted

1 Vanilla Bean – Slit Lengthwise

Wash and pit the fresh cherries. Place prepared cherries in a pint size glass jar. Make a lengthwise slit in a vanilla bean. Open the vanilla bean up. Either fold the vanilla bean in half or cut the vanilla bean in half so it fits in the glass jar. Fill the jar with silver rum. The jar should hold 9 ounces of silver rum. Fill the jar completely to the top so all the cherries and vanilla bean are completely covered. Seal the jar and store it in a cool, dark area such as a pantry for 5 days. Turn the jar over a couple of times every day during the 5 days to allow the flavors in the jar to mingle.
