Maraschino cherries


Recommended Posts

I've looked everywhere and can't find maraschino cherries (the kind you use to garnish drinks, with stems, NOT glace cherries for Christmas cakes). Anyone know where to get these? I'd like to make some Manhattans.

This is quite bizarre.

I'm quite sure any Coles/Safeway/Woolworth's would stock jars of the stuff in the baking section probably. Right next to cake mixes...

I'm... quite.. sure...

See, I was sure I could find them, too. I have a look in just about every Coles/Woolies/IGA I've been to lately, and no dice. I keep getting false hope from the red and green cocktail onions in the pickle section, although those would be good for festive Gibsons.

I don't think I've seen them in jars - I've seen them in packets though - in the dried fruit section next to the baking part in Coles. You might have more luck in the months leading up to Xmas.

Hi, have you looked in bottle shops? I'm pretty sure I've seen some in a local bottle shop recently.. next to the packets of cocktail umbrellas.

Can't recall seeing maraschino cherries at a supermarket in recent history. I think you're looking at niche or bottle shops.
