Ciliegie Ubriache | Drunk Cherries

This delicious boozy cherry sauce can be served on gelato, spooned over pound cake, or spread over grilled bread with goat cheese. Pair it with a robust glass of Poggio Grande Piano from Tuscany, and you will not be disappointed! I like to drink a bold Sangiovese any time I use this sauce.
