cocktails with maraschino liqueur?

  • c

I recently received a bottle of Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, and have been enjoying lots of aviations. But now I'd like to venture further afield with my Luxardo. I don't have Chartreuse in my collection, so I can't make a last word. Should I buy the Chartreuse, or can you recommend any great cocktails with maraschino liqueur? Thanks!

        1. Am I the only one who can't stand maraschino liqeur?

          I make tons of classic cocktails and IMHO, it's completely ruined every drink I've ever had it in (i.e. Aviation, Brandy Crusta, Brooklyn, etc.). I just don't get it.

          BTW, to the original poster, just type "maraschino liqeur" into this database and you'll find plenty of recipes:

            I tend to agree with your assessment, although I have a love affair with real maraschino cherries from Luxardo. They are bloody amazing in any cocktail. I totally prefer them over Scott Beatto's adored Amareno cherries. REAL maraschino cherries is so awesome, I will be totally happy to NEVER have that sweet sticky supermarket stuff again!
