Yield: Topping for 4 desserts.
Drain the cherries, reserving the juice. Combine the reserved juice and arrowroot, blending well. Pour into a preheated blazer, a flat shallow serving pan like a chafing dish, and stir and cook for 3 minutes. Add the cinnamon stick and lemon juice. Add the cherries and heat to boiling. Remove the cinnamon stick and pour on the preheated liquors and ignite. Ladle the flamed cherries over ice cream or other desserts.
