Tis the (sipping) season

Merry Drinkmas! Yes, it’s time again for the 12 bottles of Christmas, our annual gift guide to all things sip-worthy. As in years past, we’ve included bottles of many kinds — wine, spirits, cider, you name it — at a variety of price points. Keep in mind that during this most festive of seasons, you’re allowed to buy a gift for yourself, too. And if you’re looking for other suggestions, don’t forget our 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012 editions of the 12 Bottles of Christmas. Happy shopping (and happy holidays)!

The red bottle

For nearly 200 years, the good folks of Peter Heering, a Danish distiller, have been crafting a sweet, cherry-flavored sip that’s known simply as Cherry Heering. While the red-hued drink has had a somewhat grandmotherly reputation — Queen Elizabeth II is said to be a fan — it’s caught on of late with the hipster set, especially because of the fact it works so well in a variety of cocktails. (And it’s a must-have for making a Singapore Sling.) For the holidays, the brand has come out with a special packaging ($30) that includes a bottle and two limited-edition glasses.

Cherry Heering and Chanuka on BlogoWogo.com

As I’ve written before, Cherry Heering has long been a part of my memories and family traditions. Thus, as we stand almost on the threshold of Chanukah, when I saw an ad for Peter Heering‘s products, I thought it would be a great idea to once again, bring Cherry Heering to a family get together.

Always on the lookout for new recipes I may come across, I was pleased that Peter Heering‘s distributors sent me some intriguing ideas.

I especially liked the Coffee Latte; it’s easy to make and absolutely delicious!

1 ½ oz Coffee Heering liquor

Steamed Milk, may use skim

Pour Coffee Heering into a mug add Steamed Milk

Garnish with chocolate shavings

I tried it last eve and it certainly hit the spot. But… I can’t wait to try the “Boozy” Donuts with Creme Brulee Topping:

Donuts are the new cupcakes and a big trend for the season, an easy way to upgrade regular old store bought donuts and take it from an afternoon snack to a fancy dessert

Ingredients

    • 6 sugar-covered donuts
    • 1/2 cup of sugar
    • 3 oz either Coffee or Cherry Heering Liqueur

Directions

  • Heat the donuts in the oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes.

  • 3 oz either Coffee or Cherry Heering Liqueur

Directions

  1. Heat the donuts in the oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes.
  2. On a plate ad the sugar, brush the top of the warm donuts with water and drip in the sugar.
  3. Insert and fill the liqueur in multiple spots of the bottom of the donuts with a small turkey baster/or cake decorating tool about 1/2 oz per donut
  4. With a creme brulee torch, burn the sugar top of the donuts to a hard sugar topping. If you dont have a creme brulee torch, you can simply put in the oven on broil for a few minutes till the sugar caramelizes.
  5. Serve right away while warm, a good tip is to let the guests watch while you are putting the finishing touches, their mouths will be watering and you will look like a pro in the kitchen!

The younger grand kids will just have to make do with the store bought donuts, that is… if the “Boozy” ones last long enough for their families to arrive…

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!

Cherry Heering: Highlight at Equipotel 2012 challenge in Brazil!

On the last September 12th, the city of São Paulo, Brazil, held the largest hospitality and gastronomical event in the Latin America: Equipotel. The gastronomic area launched a competition where 16 professional bartenders from the most respected bars and restaurants of the city were able to demonstrate their skills as mixologists. Among them was Rogério Rabbit, four-times brazilian bartender of the year, who created the recipe “Seleta de Surpresas” (Selection of Surprises), on which Cherry Heering was the main ingredient. The unique flavour of Peter Heering combined with jabuticaba, a very particular brazilian berry, and other ingredients granted him the first prize of the competition, with a total score of 90 points out of 100 possible.
This is Cherry Heering: a brand recognized for its quality and sophistication everywhere in the world!

The recipe:
– Cherry Heering
– Seleta cachaça
– Routin 1883 Grenadine Syrup
– Jabuticaba (brazilian berry)
– Perrier

Cherry Heering – The Epitome of Cherry Liqueurs.
Imaginative monks in search of natural remedies, were the first to produce liqueurs. They knew the power of herbs, fruits and alcohol.
Liqueurs are fragrant, smooth, mostly sweet, relatively low in alcohol, and have the ability to uplift the mood. Mostly, stone fruits and berries form the base of liqueurs. Although French and Dutch manufacturers enjoy worldwide reputation, Denmark’s Peter Heering ranks first in cherry liqueur category.
Cherry liqueurs come in two categories: Peter Heering and the rest. Of all cherry liqueurs produced in the world, Cherry Heering stands out. While many other manufacturers produce cherry liqueurs, as far as I am concerned, Peter Heering is the best, most flavorful, and unique.
For a long time, I wanted to visit the production facilities of Peter Heering. When the opportunity presented itself to visit the plant, I jumped at it. The management even made its luxury chauffeur-driven limousine available for the short 35-minute ride from Copenhagen to Dalby.
Peter F. Heering was established in 1818 in Copenhagen. Though today it is a limited company, all shares are owned by fifth-generation members of the family. The founder started as an apprentice in a grocery store in Copenhagen. He proved to be a diligent, employee always striving, to provide more service than absolutely necessary. After his apprenticeship had ended, he elected to remain in the establishment. Meanwhile, his master’s wife was producing a popular cherry liqueur only for sale in the store.
When Peter decided to start his own business, the wife of the store owner, to show her appreciation for all his extra efforts, gave him her secret cherry recipe, which to this day is being produced, unaltered.
Thanks to his production and marketing Peter Heering succeeded rapidly, and by 1876 the company was appointed official supplier to the Danish court.
Today, the company supplies the following royal households- United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the Danish court.
Located on a 28 hectare (75 acres) land where the cherry orchards surround the plant, 50 000 cherry trees are under contract; 2500 belong to the family.
The plant employs 180 people and has liberal social policies. All employees enjoy five week of paid holidays, maternity leave for over 16 weeks, health insurance contributions and discounted lunches in the restaurant-like room. In addition to- all these benefits, all enjoy company’s sports facilities, and each employee is given a party if his or her birthday falls on a workday.
Needless to say, employee turnover is almost nonexistent.
The plant’s modern design harmonizes with the landscape’s contour. Its thatched roofs and low buildings echo a traditional Danish farm, but inside, the production facilities are most modern and immaculately clean.
The Cherry Heering is produced exclusively from the fruit grown in Dalby, where cherries thrive due to suitable terroir.
The ripe cherries are harvested, crushed, and macerated for a suitably long time in wooden upright barrels. To this, alcohol, herbs and spices are added. Next, the mixture is blended with sugar. The liqueur is aged in huge barrels for an unspecified time. When the master blender decides that the quality meets the Cherry Heering standard the product is bottled.
The final product combines an enchanting, vibrant red colour, superbly smooth texture, and exquisite taste.
Today, Peter Heering cherry liqueur is exported to 144 countries, with new export markets continually added.
The company also produces Kahlua liqueur under license, as well as many others. Two of them are unique, UTU being an orange liqueur, and Ashanti Gold, a chocolate elixir, both of which are most enjoyable. In addition to the above-mentioned products, Peter Heering produces a cherry wine (Kijafa), which can be enjoyed on its own, on the rocks, or mixed with soda water.
The management expanded operations by starting an import and distribution branch for wines as well as distilled products from around the world in an attempt to take advantage of the fleet of trucks.
Peter Heering is a versatile liqueur. It improves cocktails and can be enjoyed on its own, with a fine cup of coffee, or on the rocks, or in cooking.

Singapore Sling Cherry Heering on Killingtime.com

http://www.killingtime.com/Pegu/2009/02/03/still-be-tiki/

The drink I want to talk about isn’t really a Tiki drink. It predates the dawn of Tiki, and it actually hails from the South Pacific region. But it looks like a Tiki drink, tastes like one, and even sounds like one. I say good enough for me. I’m talking about the Singapore Sling.
The other reason I wanted to try this drink is because it gives me a chance to talk about one of my favorite, special-purpose ingredients, Cherry Heering. I first mentioned it in one of my favorite Weird Out the Bartender or the Drinkers Around Me cocktail, the Blood and Sand, but I think I’ll go into a bit more depth now.
Cherry Heering is another of those fabulous cocktail ingredients that predate cocktails. It was first produced in Denmark in 1818 by a Peter Heering, and the liqueur seems to have been referred to as Peter Heering, rather than Cherry Heering, at various points in its existence. Like many such ancient liqueurs, you can actually enjoy it straight. This makes sense. Since there were no cocktails in 1818, how the hell else were you supposed to drink it?
Board of Tiki Idols member Tiare has a current post up on both the Mixosoleum and her own blog that goes a bit more into the technical aspects of Heering’s production. She also provides a few recipes, including a recipe for the Blood and Sand that adds some tequila into the mix. It’s worth a read, and frees me up to blather on about strange minutiae as I am wont to do. The Heering website is worth a look, but make sure you have time and bandwidth—it’s a big Flash sucker. They are currently taking the rather strange marketing approach of calling themselves a fashion accessory. Heering is running a dual contest right now, asking fashion designers to design a dress to evoke one of the classic Cherry Heering cocktails, or bartenders to create a new fashion accessory for an existing designer dress. It’s all very stylish and gives them an excuse to cover the website and their written materials with photos of models in elegant but sexy gowns. I’m not complaining, I’m just observing. They also have lots of recipes on the site, and they have an original way of organizing them. They sort them by which fashion accessories they go with! For instance, if you are wearing black pearls, they suggest (among others) a drink called the Red Mouth. If you are rocking a glamorous bikini, they point you to the Copenheering. Oddly enough, when wearing jodphur boots, they suggest a Dive Bomb. Don’t ask me why they do this, but it’s fun, and Tiki Month is all about fun, so this I share with you.
I do seem to remember that I started out this post to talk about the Singapore Sling. Heering wants you to remember that too. They consider it the signature drink to make with Cherry Heering. It gets a prominent mention in all their advertising, its own page on the website, and they hold lots of events at the site of its birth, Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
Again, it isn’t technically a Tiki drink. At least it isn’t if you choose to invoke technicalities on a genre that makes up its own rules as it goes along like a gang of eight-year-olds. But it’s got lots of ingredients, it’s fruity, it’s pink, it’s usually garnished with tropical accoutrements, it’s got that glorious name, and finally, it’s being featured right here during Tiki Month, so a Tiki drink it is:

There about a billion recipes out there for the Singapore Sling and its close descendants. This is largely because the real original recipe is lost to this plane of existence. I imagine St. Peter has it printed out on cards that he hands to the better bartenders as they arrive at the Pearly Gates. Even at the Long Bar at Raffles, they can only work with customers’ scribbled notes on bar napkins from the thirties to try to reconstruct it. Here’s a sampling of the variety of ways to skin this cat, if you’re interested. My favorite among those that I have tried is this one from Robert Hess, the Drinkboy.
SINGAPORE SLING
• 1 1/2 oz. gin
• 1/2 oz. Cherry Heering
• 1/4 oz. Cointreau
• 1/4 oz. Benedictine
• 4 oz. pineapple juice
• 1/2 oz. lime juice
• 1/3 oz. hot process grenadine
• 1 dash Angustora Bitters
Shake with ice and pour, unstrained into a sling or other suitable glass. Garnish for effect.
For the record, Heering uses almost exactly this recipe, but with only an ounce of gin.
This is not the greatest cocktail of all time (or there wouldn’t be all those variants), but it is a darned fine one. It is complex, balanced, and all those flavors clear out when they are done, leaving your mouth feeling refreshed. And Heering is right to call this cocktail their own. The Benedictine and Cointreau are tiny but important background notes, the gin and the pineapple are the foundation, but what gives it the interest and exoticism is the cherry brandy from Denmark.
