Cherry Cider with Kirsch Cream

por Carlos Dragonné

In these cold days, there’s nothing like a hot drink that helps us forget the weather outside. And, if we add s little bit of Kirsch, the first gulp will taste like heaven. So, that been said, we came up with the idea of preparing a classic cherry cider.

Cherry cider is a delightful and refreshing beverage that combines the crispness of apple cider with the sweet and tart flavors of cherries. Made by fermenting cherry juice or adding cherry flavoring to traditional apple cider, cherry cider offers a unique twist on a classic favorite. With its vibrant red color and bold fruity taste, cherry cider is perfect for enjoying on a warm summer day or as a festive option during the holiday season.

Making some Cherry Cider at home.

When it comes to making cherry cider at home, there are several methods you can try. One option is to start with fresh cherries and apples, pressing them to extract the juices and then fermenting the mixture with yeast to create cider. Alternatively, you can simply add cherry juice or concentrate to store-bought apple cider and let it ferment for a few days to infuse the flavors. You can also experiment with different cherry varieties, such as tart cherries or sweet cherries, to customize the flavor profile to your liking.

Cherry cider pairs wonderfully with a variety of foods, making it a versatile choice for any occasion. Whether you’re enjoying a casual barbecue with friends or hosting a formal dinner party, cherry cider complements a wide range of dishes, from grilled meats and seafood to cheese platters and desserts. Its fruity acidity and slight effervescence help cleanse the palate between bites, making it an excellent choice for enhancing the overall dining experience. So why not give cherry cider a try and add a burst of flavor to your next gathering?

For this cherry cider we will need:

  • 4 cups of cherry juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 15 cloves
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of cold whipping cream
  • 5 teaspoons of Kirsch (cherry brandy)
  • Dark chocolate zest

Let’s make this Cider home. What to do step by step.

The way of preparing it is pretty simple. First, boil the cherry juice, cloves, cinnamon and one spoon of sugar, all together. When it boils, lower the fire until it results two and a half cups only. This will take around 10 minutes. Strain the cider. We recommend to always have a stainless steel pot for this kind of things.

Beat the cream, along with the Kirsch and the remaining sugar until they reach peaks. Serve the cider in capuchiccino style glasses and put the cream on top of the drink. Add the chocolate zest for decoration.
