Maraschino syrup

I have a recipe calling for Maraschino syrup. Is it bottled or do I have to buy the cherries and drain it off? Where would I buy it?

  1. Bottled.

    It's used primarily in cocktails.

      1. You should be able to find a small bottle in the grocery where cocktail mixers and sodas are sold. You can't miss it, dark cherry color liquid.

        1. This one looks great but the shipping price is insane, $11.95 for two bottles. That's more than the cost of the syrup. :(

          1. Update: After running all over Manhattan with no success, I followed a hunch and found it at Kalustyan's. Mind you, it lists for ~$3.50 and I had to shell out $5.99 ("if you didn't buy it at Kalustyan's, you didn't pay enough) but I didn't have much choice and at least the brand uses cane sugar and natural flavoring. I was happy to find it.
