Written by Debra C. Argen   
Travis Hasse Cherry Pie Liqueur - Drink Pie, LLC Spring is here; the tulips, daffodils, and the cherry trees are in bloom. Celebrate the beauty of the season with Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur, a scrumptious liqueur made from maraschino cherries, vanilla, and neutral grain spirits.

 

Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie LiqueurTo celebrate the one-year anniversary and the success of Travis Hasse Apple Pie Liqueur, which Travis launched in 2008, Travis created a second "pie", Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur in 2009. While you may not be able to have your cake and eat it, too, the same is not true for these irresistible pie liqueur spirits which are the inspiration for creative culinary and cocktail recipes.  

Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur, 15% ABV, 30 proof is made from maraschino cherries, vanilla, and neutral grain spirits. The color is cherry red with aromatic maraschino cherries and vanilla on the nose. 

Tasting Notes: This aromatic spirit delivers ripe cherry pie filling on the palate with a delicious hint of vanilla. Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur is a versatile spirit in cocktail as well culinary recipes.

Now that spring is here, Mother's Day, bridal showers, weddings, and graduations are soon to follow, which was the inspiration for Luxury Experience's Cherry Bloom, a sophisticated pretty in pink cocktail made with Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur, Pink Champagne, and Mandarin Orange Light Syrup.

My inspiration for Luxury Experience's Banana Split with a Cherry on Top was to create a "liquid dessert" incorporating all of the delicious flavors found in a banana split; ice cream, bananas, hot fudge, whipped cream, chopped nuts, and of course, a maraschino cherry on top. The cocktail is a delectable blend of Banana Liqueur, Vermont Spirits White Vodka made with 100% pure milk sugar, and Half & Half topped with Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur that is served in a Martini glass that is rimmed in melted dark chocolate and crushed nuts with a stemmed maraschino cherry garnish.
