Add the bourbon and sugar to a medium saucepan. Simmer on low heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool for 15-20 minutes.
Divide the cherries into mason jars. You'll need 4 or 5 pint-sized jars.
Pour the bourbon syrup over the cherries until it completely covers the fruit. Put the lids on tightly and store the cherries in the refrigerator. I recommend waiting 1-2 weeks before serving the cherries.
These cherries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one year.
