Proof66 Notes

Lazzaroni Maraschino liqueur is made by the same company responsible for the definitive Italian amaretto liqueur. It is made from the Marasca cherry and famous in cocktail circles for its dry, light taste. Because the cherry pits are also ground and included in the mixture, it achieves a dry, bitter taste.

Excellent stuff. The cherry flavor shines through, with tinge of woody and vanilla flavor. A little on the sweet side- my absolute favorite maraschino is dryer, but I do prefer the cherry flavor of this one to the other. Note to others: Maraschino is not supposed to be an overly sweet liqueur- it is much more subtle and dry like a liquor rather than something like a sugary limoncello or amaretto. This particular one is the sweetest I have had- besides some of the modern "maraschino flavored" liqueurs which are basically supposed to be maraschino cherry flavored rather than the traditional drink.

Dry. I don't really drink it that much, actually I have over half the bottle left in my cabinet.

Unfortunately, I can't compare this to other maraschino liqueurs, but on its own I find it quite good and like the element that it adds to my cocktails. I won't be caught without it, at least not until I get a hold of another brand to try.

For quite some time I've wanted to try a Maraschino liqueur, hoping it might be a cherry version of Limoncello. After all, both originate in Italy, both are fruit based, both are liqueurs. I remember seeing old ad's for Luxardo Maraschino and was hooked on trying it. I found myself in a liquor store that had Lazzaroni Maraschino and decided to give it a spin. What a mistake. This is an altogether nondescript liqueur. It has a very, very slight scent and taste of cherry. Besides that you get a minor bitter taste from the ground up cherry pits.  Completely forgettable in most all respects. Unless the Luxardo version is vastly superior to the Lazzaroni version, I'm afraid I don't see the purpose of Maraschino liqueur. The seeming knowledgeable fellow at the liquor store said that Maraschino is primarily used for baking, as in cakes and torts. I have found a number of recipes that confirm this, and may actually try to bake one, as I don't like to throw my hard earned money down the drain....
