Thirsty Thursdays: Maraschino Cherry Cocktail

April 19, 2012

This maraschino cherry cocktail is dessert in a glass.  Sweet and tangy, this cocktail is a festive drink for any occasion.  Rum and amaretto and mixed with fruit juices to make a luxurious cocktail that you can sip on throughout the night.  The final touch is a dash a grenadine syrup that adds that sweet cherry like flavor.  You can learn to make your own grenadine syrup by reading my previous blog post on the subject.
