The quintessential Italian maraschino cherries. These all-natural, pitted Marasca cherries in syrup¬†have been the gold standard in bars, restaurants, cocktails around the world since their inception.
Candied cherries are soaked in Luxardo marasca cherry syrup. 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 and the dark red color is all natural. Their unique taste comes from the marasca cherry syrup which is made starting from the same juice used to prepare the infusion for the Cherry Liqueur ‚ÄúSangue Morlacco‚Äù.¬†
Today, like in the golden age of cocktails, Luxardo Original Maraschino Cherries are used in the worlds‚Äô best bars and by the most famous mixologists as a garnish in their creations. The syrup itself may be used in many dishes, from desserts to pan sauces and more.

These cherries are so delicious and are the perfect accompaniment for the perfect Manhattan or Old Fashioned!
The Meadow is our go to place for Luxardo Cherries, which are the most amazing cherries. A Manhattan isn't a Manhattan without one!
Since we live only a block away, we normally just run over to pickup a jar (and maybe some bitters and fleur de sel too), but since the location is closed due to COVID, we ordered a couple of jars from their online store.
It was a very well laid out digital store and easy to order what we needed. (Yes, we bought some chocolate and salt too!)
The package arrived easily within a week. Everything was individually wrapped and they even put a bow on one of the jars. Nice touch!
Needless to say, I can't wait until they are allowed to reopen the physical store, but until then, I'll definitely place another order online.
A must for any Manhattan, great tasting.
