  • 50ml Gin

  • 1 dash Absinthe
  • 1 Luxardo Original Maraschino cherry
  • 20ml Luxardo Maraschino liquer

Italian Inspiration

This cocktail was made to celebrate the one marasca cherry tree that survived the war and went on to further produce so many other trees for the Luxardo orchard. It is made with Italian drinks in mind. Sweet like limoncello, strong and bold like the Negroni. I made this drink with the Luxardo family in mind, something that all the generations would enjoy. My best representation of an Italian Cocktail


  • Rinse glass with absinthe,
  • Put one Luxardo Original Maraschino cherry covered in it's juice into a mixing glass,
  • Add lemon juice, orgeat syrup, gin and Luxardo Maraschino,
  • Stir until cold and slightly rose coloured,
  • Single strain, serve with the cherry from the mixing glass.
