Candied Cherries:


  1. In a large, liquid measuring cup, combine the cherry syrup, condensed milk, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk to combine. Divide the mixture into 2 pint-sized drinking glasses. Working with one glass at a time, add half of the milk and stir with a long spoon. Mix vigorously and assertively as you pour the seltzer in, stopping when you’re an inch from the top the glass. Continue stirring until you have a nice layer of foam. Repeat with the second egg cream. Garnish with Candied Cherries on a skewer balanced on the glass and drink immediately.

Candied Cherries:

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, add the cherries, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, cardamom, orange juice and 3 cups water. Cook until the sugars are dissolved and the syrup comes to a light boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes to an hour, until the syrup is thick and the cherries are a deep red. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Remove the cardamom pods and discard.
  2. Add the almond extract to the mixture and stir to combine. Transfer the cherries, with syrup, to a large glass jar (or several small) and seal with an airtight lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 year.
