Maraschino Luxardo is one of the most iconic liquors and in his category one of the oldest in Europe. Luxardo Maraschino is a true classic and is one of the most important bottles to stock in your backbar as it played a very important role in the creation of many classic cocktails.
When I was creating this cocktail I wanted make a "new classic" inspired by the seasonal flavours of summer and mainly by using ingredients that you can easily find all around the world. Also My main aim was to highlight and develop the Maraschino character and make it the true protagonist in my drink.
As every cocktail has a inspiration behind, I would like to introduce you to mine ; "42 Roman Street" called after the great location of Luxardo family distillery at Colli Euganei Torreglia, the beautiful Italian landscape, which has attracted ambitious conquerors, refined noblemen, poets and writers of all times.
So close your eyes and Imagine to be for one day in Torreglia, on the wings of your Vespa, riding through those ups and downs hills surrounded by red cherry trees, combined with a pleasant sweet breeze that makes you feel free.
Once you reach the top please, stop for few minutes, enjoy the view and obviously your drink... Salute!!!
