Heering at the Vinordic

The traditional Vinordic fair, held every other year in Stockholm is now coming up during the 22nd and the 26th of April. If you will be visiting the fair, make sure that you swing by the Heering stand! We will be there representing both Heering Cherry and Coffee liqueur- creating delicious cocktails.

Heering at the Grand Cru in Örebro

Heering was this year present at the Grand Cru fair in Örebro between the dates of the 4th and the 6th of April. Heering Cherry liqueur was served neat as it is with cheese as well as in cocktails and rumors say that many people were surprised by what can be made with that old, nice looking bottle. Heering Coffee liqueur on the other hand was introduced for the first time to the Grand Cru people and cocktails such as Heering Latte (warm whipped milk and Heering Coffee liqueur) as well as Smooth White Russian got people lining up in a queue!

“Aloha Cocktail” with Heering Coffee Liqueur

The following could be read on the famous cocktail blog by Eric Felten:

If I can’t be gratuitous with the new camera and photos I’m able to take, what joy in life is there, no? This was my second attempt at an entry in MxMo XVIII that didn’t make the cut; not because I liked it less than the Sleeping Giant, because I actually preferred this drink, but because even though it uses orange juice it just didn’t feel like it was jiving in the spirit of the thing. This is a more traditional Tiki cocktail in that it’s a blend of 2-3 juices in moderate proportions as well as a liqueur and a couple of rums thrown in for good measure. According to Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry this drink was created in 1970 by Hank Riddle, while working at the famous ‘Don The Beachcomber’s’ restaurant as a competition entry. I gravitated towards this because it offered an opportunity to use Cherry Heering, an ingredient I’ve only recently acquired through the generosity of my in-laws and have been wanting to use sooner than later.

Aloha Cocktail
• 1/2 oz lime juice
• 1/2 oz orange juice
• 1/2 oz grenadine
• 1/2 oz 151 Bacardi Rum
• 1/2 oz white Puerto Rican rum
• 1/2 oz Cherry Heering 1
• 2 dashes Angostura bitters

Shake well with ice cubes and strain into a cocktail glass.

This has a really nice subtlety to it that the Sleeping Giant was lacking. The sweetness is still there but the tart of the lime juice, the herbals of the Heering, and the complexity of the bitters all balance this out to make it a much more enjoyable and well-rounded drink. I’m impressed at how well the Heering comes through and given that this is my first drink using it I’m anxious to see how it performs in something that focuses its flavor a touch more. The 151 has the effect of reminding you that you are indeed drinking an alcoholic drink and keeps it from sinking into a mire of dullsville. Overall it’s an above average drink that surpasses the balance I find in a lot of Tiki cocktails, so hat’s off, and aloha, to Mr. Hank Riddle for this one.

Excerpt from the Wall Street Journal

Heering Cherry liqueur was mentioned in an article in the Wall Street Journal where the “Savoy Cocktail Book” by Harry Craddock is discussed. The following can be read:

“the Gilroy does contain gin and dry vermouth and orange bitters; but then there is the fresh lemon juice and the cherry brandy (in keeping with the rule of thumb from above, the tart lemon juice calls for balancing with the sweet Cherry Heering liqueur).”

Also, a Heering recipe is published:

Gilroy Cocktail

1½ oz gin
¾ oz Cherry Heering
½ oz dry vermouth
½ oz fresh lemon juice
1 dash orange bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a stemmed cocktail glass.
