Would anyone care to comment about using Maraschino liqueur vs brandy in your cherry recipes? I've been brandying mine with excellent results

One of the keys is that using luxado (not the Croatian stuff) is that the flavor isn't really of cherries, but rather almonds. That comes from the use of cracked pits rather than the cherry flesh that a brandy would use.

One thing I would add to some of the recs might be a good amount of vodka or other neutral spirit just to keep the octane level high enough without wrecking the flavor.
