Ingredients (serves 2):

4 ounces gin
1 ounce Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
1 ripe lemon


  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Cut lemon in half and squeeze in juice of both halves
  • Add the gin and the Maraschino liqueur
  • Shake briskly for 10-15 seconds
  • Serve in a chilled martini glass

Bartender’s hint:  Best results are achieved with Luxardo, the original creator of Maraschino liqueur.  If you can’t find the Luxardo brand, Maraska or Stock are similar but not as good.  Do not use cherry flavored liqueurs such as Cherry Heering; these are not substitutes for Maraschino liqueur and will result in a nasty-tasting drink.
