Tall Tahitian

Lynnda Cloutier


one ingredient that shows up a lot in old cocktail books is maraschino, and Italian cherry-based liqueur. Not sweet, not even red, it has a bitter quality that nicely balances some of the sweeter ingredients rum embraces. A bottle will last a long time, and its contributions to your drink making will be considerable.Source unknown
