Creating our wedding bounce

Last summer mom and I experimented with making cherry bounce and it was an experiment that turned out very yummy!  When Cameron and I were deciding how to handle alcoholic drinks at our wedding we decided to go with a few signature cocktails and fruit bounce is one of the cocktails that we will be serving.

For the wedding we made blackberry and blueberry bounce, and the process is really easy.  The recipe we used called for 4 quarts vodka (or any hard alcohol you want to use) mixed with 2 1/2 cups sugar.

You then pour the vodka sugar mixture into court sized jars filled 3/4 of the way full with fruit.  We chose to use frozen fruit becuase of the ease as well as affordability.

Once the lids are on you just let the bounce sit for about three months.  The first couple of weeks you need to turn the jars over every day to mix up the mixture, but then the work is done!  To serve you just mix a quart of bounce with about a liter of citrus soda.  I hope that all of our wedding guests enjoy this yummy treat at our wedding

On a separate note please play for everyone in Joplin.  Our family and friends are ok, but some of their houses were destroyed in the storm, and many in Joplin were not as lucky.  Keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers, and look for ways to help those in the community.
