Stacy's Picks: Luxardo Maraschino Cherries
Yes, I already raved about Fort Defiance, but my love affair with this Brooklyn gem is still going strong. This time it's the drinks that have me seeing fireworks and who could blame me when I got to create my own signature cocktail! It starts with your vodka of choice, followed by club soda, and finishes with cherries. But before you think artificial and unsavory, think again. The cherries I put in my drink are Luxardo Maraschino Cherries. Imported from Italy, Luxardo takes whole all-natural pitted cherries and candies them with Marasca syrup. They are a ridiculously delicious alternative to your typical lemon or lime adding just a hint of sweetness to every sip. So next time you're at Fort Defiance come thirsty and mix your own!
