Sometimes easy is just easy. And this is easy. You should smell this: Smashed sour cherry pits gathered from making 20 pies. Put them into 2 large glass jars. Fill one with Everclear; the other with Wild Turkey 101. Open the jars a couple weeks later and take a whiff.
If bitter almonds and cherries were angels they would smell like this. Um, drunken, boozy angels that is.
