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.
