Before we proceed any further, please note that although some of these recipes refer to the bourbon in them as "optional," it is not. For best results, please do not hesitate to add 1 Tbsp. bourbon to whatever quantity is called for.
This recipe calls for jarred sour cherries in syrup (NOT the same as maraschino, please, FYI), but you could also use thawed frozen cherries. Either way, adding bourbon is a great idea. Get the recipe at Bon Appétit.
Would not advise baking with peaches in November except that these are so goddamn adorable. And come to think of it, drained canned peaches would probably work just fine. Get the recipe at Smitten Kitchen.

But not without my bourbon.
Happy holidays, y'all.
