A riff on the classic daiquiri with a touch of cherry liqueur for extra complexity and a bittersweet finish.

  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1 whole lime’s worth)
  • 3 ⁄4 oz. Luxardo maraschino cherry liqueur
  • 1 lime, for garnish
  • Brandied cherries, for garnish


  • Combine ingredients in ice-filled shaker
  • shake
  • Strain drink into a chilled coupe and garnish with a thin slice of lime and a brandied cherry.
