Homemade Luxardo Cherries


I think it was on our first trip to Vegas when Alex ordered a drink that came with a round dark garnish on a toothpick. He of course refused to eat it, so the slightly more adventurous me popped it into my mouth. I later found out that this delightful little fruit was a Luxardo cherry. Since then I have found Luxardo cherries in whiskey sours and Manhattens at trendy or upscale restaurants and bars.


Simply put, Luxardo cherries are Maraschino Cherries, but unlike the ones you top your ice cream sundaes with real Luxardo Maraschino Cherries aren't full of red dyes and chemicals. They taste so much better too! If I haven't already convinced you to give these a try over the candy apple red ones you buy at the store, this BuzzFeed article will do the trick.



I'd been wanting to make these for months, but these are a great option if you'd rather buy them. While researching I found two different reoccurring recipes, a simple recipe and a slightly more involved recipe. I tried out the latter

  2. Yumm, I love grabbing cherry's from the bar but I always know that they aren't the good for me so this is a way better alternative! :)
