Whiskey Cherry Balls — 🥃 😉

Rainier cherries are my favorite. Here in the Steel City they only come around in the Summertime. So, of course, I pay my favorite supermarket Giant Eagle a visit more of often than twice a week. They’re a little pricey but they’re well worth it.

Rainier Cherries

I have a couple of ways I eat these babies. The obvious, rinse’em off and go to town.  They have seeds, so be careful.

I’m a huge fan of whipped cream. I will make my very simple vanilla based whipped cream and dip the cherries when I’m craving something really sweet.



  1. 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  2. 2 tablespoons Confectioner Sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract (NEVER USE THE IMITATION)


  1. In a large bowl, whip cream until creamy.
  2. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, the cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.
  3. Optional – You can add almond extract, lemon extract whatever your taste buds fancy. Remember not to clash the flavors.

Lastly, my Whiskey Cherry Balls — When I know I have a get together coming up my, Six 2 Six, time to mix™. I will prepare these lovelies a couple of days in advance.
