The Originai Maraschino Cherries
The first Luxardo Maraschino Cherries were produced at the Luxardo plant in Zara around 1905, likely to be the first of their kind in the world. The Luxardo Originai Maraschino Cherries are cherries candied with Marasca syrup, a fruit cultivated and processed by Luxardo for distilling its renowned Maraschino, and for preparing, by infusion, the Cherry liqueur 'Sangue Morlacco'.
Luxardo Gourmet Maraschino Cherries - 400g Jar
The percentage of Marasca cherries in jars and tins is about 50% and so is the percentage of syrup. No thickening agents of any type and no preservatives are used. Natural colour.
Used by the best Mixologists as a garnish in cocktails and long drinks.

The only issue is that they are a lil expensive! Or so says my wife... before I bought these, I caught my wife stealing my Rye soaked maraschinos from my drink! I calmly explained that that was a NO-NO! So she asked whenever I made a drink that I throw a few extra in. No problem love! I would also catch her snacking on the maraschino cherries right out of the jar. No biggie.
So then these amazingly delicious, sweet, meaty, Italian, Luxardos show up! I immediately make an equally delicious manhattan, and throw in a couple extra cherries for the wifey. No surprise, she LOVES them. Well, the next day I come home from work and catch her munching on the damn Luxardos right out of the jar!!!?!?! I explain that they are about $16/jar and NOT for snacking. A small argument ensues about spending so much on a jar of cherries, blah blah blah.
While mixing up my after work bevie, I calmly explain that If JUST used for garnishing an adult libation, a jar will last a long time! If wifey is snacking on them like popcorn, it's gonna get expensive:)
-An old fashioned
-Every well-crafted liquor made
Here's what we used for our Old Fashions:
- Bulliet bourbon (2 oz)
- 3 drops Angostura bitters
- 2 Luxardo cherries
- 1-2 tsp Luxardo cherry juice
Mix these in a rocks glass gently and serve. Legitimately I think I've found my next new favorite drink. It's clean, tasty, has a bite/burn when it goes down, and it just darned pleasant. If you want to make it extra fancy, grab an orange, take some of the rind and make a twist. We didn't have an orange and it was perfectly fine w/out, but definitely ups the presentation factor a bit.
These will take center stage in your handcrafted cocktails (Hello, MANHATTAN!) and the incredibly thick and delicious syrup in the jar is every bit as amazing and valuable in your kitchen as the actual cherries are.
Yes, these are a splurge.
Yes, you are worth it.
And wow what a gift for the cocktail lover in your life.
I want to bake a brie and cover it with these and some toasted almonds. I would say "I'll update this post to tell you how that goes" but I won't because it will be amazing, I promise.
NOW ORDER 10 JARS! :D
I'm sorry I bought two jars of this stuff and will make sure my next purchase is a RED stemmed cherry that doesn't mush when you bite into it and doesn't take away from the perfect concoction you just mixed.
Color me disappointed to say the least.
These small, dark, whole natural cherries are in syrup that is 75% cherry juice - incredibly rich, viscous, and satisfying. Sweet-tart, with a slightly almost boozy note, but not harsh or bitter at all. Everyone mentions using these in cocktails, but we keep a jar of these around for desserts and cheese plates, too. In fact, after a heavy meal, you can put a small bowl of these out with toothpicks and just serve them straight as dessert. People go crazy for them! You can also use as a topping for ice cream (a little goes a long way b/c it's so concentrated), or for the ultimate decadent treat pair with a high-quality chocolate (we've only tried with dark) by dabbing some syrup and a single cherry onto a square. If you're a fan of the buttery Gateau Basque cake, these are the closest in flavor to the Basque wild cherries (iGourmet, via Amazon.com) we've found - and the price point, with shipping, is actually a bit cheaper.

One or two on your breakfast pancakes and porridge also goes down a treat.
