You Need These Vodka-Infused Cherries in Your Life

In our experience, putting the words "vodka-infused" in front of anything is a great way of taking whatever that thing is, and making it 10,000 times better. Except maybe a "vodka-infused" Best Man speech. Those don't really go down so well.

Case in point: the above recipe for vodka-infused "Cherry Bombs" by The Vegetarian Baker, which takes ordinary, boring cherries, and kicks 'em up to 9,000 by punching holes in them and soaking them in vodka for 48 hours. Then, they're dipped in melted white chocolate and garnished with blue sprinkles -- because nothing says America like booze-laden fruit draped in Old Glory's colors.

Gianni Jaccoma is a staff writer for Thrillist, and he suddenly has a hankering for cherries. Follow his vodka-infused tweets @gjaccoma, and send your news tips to
