Luxardo Maraschino Cherries (400g)

SKU #1046912

You pay attention to every detail when making your Manhattan, down to the ice, so why would you garnish your libation with one of those cellulose monstrosities marketed as a maraschino cherry? Instead, try the original Maraschino cherry from Luxardo, which uses real pitted Marasca cherries and Marasca syrup for these delcious little orbs. Extremely high quality--these cherries will enhance your cocktail significantly. These Marashino Cherries were given the Gold Award in June 2012 at the 51st World "Monde Selection," the oldest quality competition of its kind in the world.

When I bought these for myself, I joked with my colleagues here at K&L that I must either be a fool or a gourmet... $16 Cherries! That is crazy! Well, I have discovered that like white truffle oil and very old condimento balsamico, the Luxardo cherries are worth it. First of all, they are very small, but have more cherry flavor individually than a whole fistful of the normal "red" maraschinos. Just one or two and a smidgen of the syrup in the bottle make a big impression on a cocktail. The 360 gram jar lasts a long time, even if you dip into it as often as Cinnamon and I do. My favorite use for them is to simply pop a couple into a bourbon on the rocks... Yum!

These cherries are the absolute real deal for a Manhattan

These are the final ingredient for the ultimate Manhattan: Stir with ice (gently but thoroughly) 2 parts Crown Royal Reserve (for a bolder drink, substitute your choice of rye whiskey; for a sweeter drink, bourbon), 1 part Quady Vya sweet Vermouth, Regan's Orange Bitters to taste (I like about 4-5 dashes, but I'd suggest starting out with less); strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with one of these sublime cherries. The great thing about these is that both the cherries and their syrup are so dense, they do not really mix with the drink, leaving you a delicious treat at the end without making your cocktail overly sweet. Anywhere one might normally use a "standard" maraschino cherry is a candidate for these, and I'm sure they'd be fantastic on top of vanilla ice cream as well. These don't come cheap, but they're certainly worth trying at least once!

Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
