Nice pink color. Fred Yarm on Cocktail Virgin suggests that Luxardo is more vibrant than Stock. Using a bit less lemon and liqueur when substituting might be appropriate.

Sweet-tart flavored. We used

Sweet-tart flavored. We used Luxardo and Bulldog Gin. Stirred, not shaken (sorry, Mr. Bond!). A nice drink with a pretty pinkish-red hue. It definitely looks like the cherry blossoms that will pop out soon here in the Washington, DC, area.

I found my source reference

I found my source reference and added it. You can read the comparison between Luxardo and Stock. I've never tried Stock, so I can't comment, but using a bit less of both Lemon and Luxardo might be a good idea. I did raise an eyebrow at a full ounce of Maraschino! I plan to try this myself soon. With that much lemon, I think it might be best shaken.
