Substituting Kirsch for Maraschino?

JK Grence the Cosmic Jester | Aug 21, 2006 06:38 AM

I recently went out and bought a decent bottle of kirschwasser for cheese fondue. While looking through various cocktail books, I notice there are some cocktails that call for maraschino liqueur. Are kirsch and maraschino close enough in taste that I could easily substitute one for the other, or should I keep the kirsch on the shelf for the fondue? And what all can I do with the kirsch besides add it to fondue?
