Cook the Issue 2010: Fresh Cherry Margarita

I just did not like this drink.  Everyone that tried it said that it tasted bad.. I heard cough syrup, children's benadryl, and robitussin as comments.  I am glad the recipe only made one was interesting to try something different but I definitely would never make this again.

I have some of the real stuff in the cellar-- there was another cocktail with Maraschino liqueur in the previous Cook the Issue challenge for Issue 97. As soon as I score some cherries, I will make this one and report back. Posted: 9:47 pm on May 24th

Pielove writes: Hi Liamsaunt-- too bad this was such a disappointment. I think ICD did not like it either. One question for both of you-- did you use Maraschino liqueur (like Luxardo brand) or did you substitute? Posted: 9:37 pm on May 23rd
