Maraschino Cherries Homemade

Yum Yum... can't wait to try theses :)

Maraschino Cherries

Fresh cherries of your choice (marascas are the best choice but very hard to find)
Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
Small Jar

Choose the best cherries from your batch, enough to fit tightly into your chosen jar (no need to buy a special jar. Remove the stems and pit the cherries. Pack into the jar and add sugar. The amount of sugar is up to you, depending on how sweet you like your cherries. Close the lid tightly and refrigerate for one full day.

The following day add enough Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur to fully cover the cherries. Cover, shake, and marinate in refrigerator for one week, give or take a day or two.

Pop one of these homemade Maraschino cherries in your next Manhattan and become a cocktail hero, extra points if you serve them to a cocktail party crowd.
