canned variety. **Other cherry flavored liqueur can be used such as Cherry
Brandy but Cherry Heering works the best.

cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water, stir into cherries and cook and stir
until clear and slightly thickened. Remove about 1 cup of cherries and

Heering or other type of cherry liqueur. Serve in chilled bowls garnished
with mint and dollops of sour cream.
