I bought some to try a Hemingway cocktail, only to discover that Maraschino liqueur in no way resembles those bright red cherries, and instead has a very assertive, bitter edge to it. I found the Hemingway quite meh.
Meanwhile, I’ve got a whole bottle of Luxardo Maraschino, and I’m totally at a loss for how to mix it. I’d love some suggestions, especially for applications that tone down that dry in-your-faceness. Alternatively, I suppose something that uses that to the best advantage would be welcome. I just know I won’t ever sip this straight from a cordial glass and appreciate its nuance.
