To start this special holiday weekend off, we are going to recap the coverage we have done on our favorite liqueurs, and give you a handy dandy list ranked in order of importance so you can prioritize your home bar purchases!
You know how in movies about the 1920s everyone seems to be fabulously dressed and drinking deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktails out of sparkling coupe glasses? Now that we have said that, do you also want to be fabulously dressed and drinking a deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktail out of a sparkling coupe glass?
Well then dust off your Great Gatsby-est attire and get ready for a 20s-inspired drink that will blow your minds!
When we started to plan out what we would focus on for this week’s liquor spotlight we initially dismissed Luxardo simply because we assumed we had already covered it in the past. When we discovered upon further investigation that no, we had NOT ever covered the liqueur in-depth we were both shocked and appalled — and we knew that this slight had to be rectified immediately.
So lets talk about Luxardo, maraschino cherries, and why you shouldn’t have one without the other!
