  2. Turn heat onto medium, and slowly stir in the milk with a wire whisk.
  1. Continue whisking until the mixture comes to a rollicking, bubbly boil, and boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
  1. Remove from heat and whisk in the reserved 1/4 cup cherry juice, brandy, and butter, until fully incorporated.
