Luxardo Marischino

What in the world is Luxardo Maraschino? (pronounced mar-ess-skee-no)

It is a liqueur made from marasca sour cherries.  It has so much sugar added to it, you don't know what you're tasting.  I know what it doesn't taste like.  Cherry.  It's kind of earthy, if the earth was made of sugar cane.

Why isn't the earth made of sugar cane?

It's a nice additive to cocktails; use in small doses.  There are other types of maraschinos, but I have yet to gain access to them.
