Campfire Cocktails- 17th century Cherry Bounce

Video

Open-vat fermentation in the 18th century was a common practice. Jon Townsend shares Martha Washington’s recipe for Cherry Bounce, which although not made at the campsite (it takes 8 weeks to ferment), was a drink often brought along when on a trip.

Jon Townsend has made a business out of making clothing, accessories, camping and cooking products that are true to the 18th and 19th century.  He has been making videos about life, food and trades true to the times for several years.
