1 (15-ounce) can Bing cherries in syrup

1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice

3 tablespoons Kirsch liqueur

2 tablespoons Triple Sec

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 cup water

In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water. Stir slurry into mixture and continue cooking until sauce thickens to desired consistency.
