"Part of a Christmas menu from one of our national supermarkets. Though I am not a fan of cherries I thought others may like. I have put this recipe into the Christmas catergory which would apply more to countries that have their summer at this time of year."

I made this using frozen cherries, and made this exactly as written. It does tend to make the champagne a little cloudy and reduces the fizz, it is more like a champagne cocktail, and does taste very nice. As suggested in the intro, this would be great during Christmas or really nice on a hot day. I have some syrup left in the fridge and it has gotten a little thick, but I am going to make this again with the leftovers. This does give a lovely taste to the champagne and those that drank it did enjoy it.
