Make Your Own Spiked Maraschino Cherries

Why is it that pretty much everything in this life can be improved upon by putting ‘a cherry on top?’ An ice cream sundae just doesn't seem complete without one.  When it comes to classic cocktails like the Manhattan or an Old Fashioned, a Maraschino cherry adds the right amount of sweetness and elegance.

It's very easy to make your own boozy Maraschino cherries right at home - you just need two ingredients: cherries and sealable mason Jars!

Here's our recipe for your very own spiked Maraschino cherries.



  • 1 bag frozen pitted cherries (feel free to use fresh pitted cherries in season)
  • Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
  • 1 glass Mason jar with tight-fitting lid
