Mash the cherries slightly with a potato masher Add the simple syrup and alcohol, and cherry juice into bowl of cherries. Mix well Separate all ingredients into individual jars. Make sure that cherries are distributed evenly and liquid content fully submerges cherries. Seal the Jars.

When infusion time has passed, strain with a strainer so that you can filter skins.
