Maraschino cherries go back to their Italian roots. Produced in Torreglia, Italy, these cherries are nothing like the bright red orbs you find in cocktails from workaday bars. Dense and chewy with a sweet-tart flavor, these maraschino cherries are made with prized sour marasca cherries preserved in the fruit’s famed liqueur. They’ll take your Manhattan (or Shirley Temple) to new heights and are also delicious spooned with their rich syrup over ice cream or cheesecake.
Non-Alcholic Ingredients: Marasca cherries, sugar, marasca cherry juice, glucose, citric acid, natural color, Maraschino natural flavor.
