Cherry Heering Back on the Scene

Last night I was at the Campbell Apartment testing out some recipes made with Cherry Heering. The cherry liqueur has been around since 1818 but since Kindred Spirits took it over around the beginning of the year its enjoying an increased visibility on the scene. Jonathan Pogash has created some cocktails for the Campbell Apt that feature the liqueur, they should be on the menu in the next few days. Now I know there have been some sugary-sweet cherry liqueurs and cordials on the market over time, but don’t make the mistake of assuming Cherry Heering is a glorified commercial grenadine like some others. It has a distinct ripe cherry flavor and a cinnamon spice to it. It is also has a good viscosity to it, which I look for in a liqueur. It mixes well with dark liquors but makes a great after-dinner drink served neat. I can see lots of tasty holiday drinks being made with Cherry Heering. They also have a coffee liqueur coming out around the top of the year, which I am really looking forward to since I love coffee cocktails! Here are the two recipes I tried last night:

Cherry Whiskey Fizz
• 2 oz premium bourbon
• ¾ oz Cherry Heering Liqueur
• 1 oz lemon
• 1 egg white
• Splash of soda
Combine all ingredients except soda in a mixing glass, add ice and shake well. Pour into a collins glass over fresh ice, top with soda. Garnish with a brandied cherry and a fat lemon peel speared together.

Blood & Sand
• 2 parts premium Scotch
• 1 part Cherry Heering Liqueur
• 1 part Sweet Vermouth
• 1 part orange juice
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and shake. Strain into a chilled 7 oz cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange disk flamed over the top, then dropped into the cocktail
