Homemade Maraschino Cherries
Adapted from The New York Times
Yield: 32 Maraschino Cherries
  • 1 cup Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 32 cherries (about 1½ cups); preferably pitted, or just warn guests they have pits
  1. Combine the Maraschino liqueur and sugar in a small pot over medium-low heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves fully, about 5 minutes. Add the cherries, stir to coat, and remove from the heat. Cool to room temperature then transfer to a glass jar. Seal tightly and store in the refrigerator.
