Think you know what a maraschino cherry is? Think again. The glowing candied orb sitting on your sundae has as much in common with these beauties as a packet of non-dairy "creamer" has with fresh milk from Bessie the cow. Like Bessie's best, these are the real deal - the original maraschino cherry.
Luxardo uses only real marasca sour cherries, which they grow themselves, and pack in a heavy syrup made with sweetened marasca cherry juice. These cherries are deep and dark and dense, with a rich sweet-tart flavor to match. These are the best thing that could ever happen to a Manhattan or an old-fashioned. (Not to mention a Shirley Temple!) But don't stop there - dessert is calling. Stud your upside-down cake with Luxardos tucked into the pineapple rings. Drizzle that syrup on ice cream. And then there's cheesecake... Oh my.
