Marasca di casa Cesarine is a liqueur made from a specific variety of sour cherries, the Marasca, harvested in the valleys of the Emilia-Romagna region. Legend has it that it was invented in the 1500s by a monk pharmacist in Zadar, a city that was once the domain of the Venetian Republic.
In the old family recipe books of our Cesarine, dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century, we find the version we are proposing today, which uses the whole fruit. To obtain this captivating ruby-red liquor, during the infusion in alcohol, both the fleshy pulp of the fruit and the stone are used. The stone lends a delicate and complex bitter almond aftertaste, which is what sets Cesarine's marasca apart.

For example, the Cesarine choose it to accompany a seasonal fruit salad; they serve it in combination with excellent 70% dark chocolate or with forest fruits, or to garnish ice-cream. When diluted with water it is perfect as a topping for sponge cake or to be used as an alternative to alkermes liquor in the famous zuppa inglese dessert.
