Odinsblood – Thursday Drink Night



This is the second libation I came up with for last Week’s Thursday Drink Night with the theme: “Not Absinthe: Aquavit, Arak, Anisette, Becherovka, Pernod, Ricard, Sambuca – any anise spirit that isn’t absinthe!”





  • 1¾ oz aged Aquavit (OP Anderson)
  • 1 oz Cherry Heering
  • ¾ oz Campari
  • 1 dash Xocolatl Mole Bitters


stir, strain, serve up

I started as a base idea with the familiar Negroni, which is equal parts Gin, Sweet Vermouth, and Campari.  I thought swapping the gin for the Aquavit was natural enough, approximately like swapping caraway for juniper flavor.  The cherry heering has I think a similar richness and sweetness to the vermouth, so I thought it might be a nice thing to mix it up as well.  Using equal parts wasn’t quite right. so I had to play with the ratios for balance.  The bitters were needed because the heering lacks the herbal complexity of the vermouth.  I first tried orange bitters, but they were not quite right; the mole however did the trick, and completes what I think is an interesting drink. 


A new Heering cocktail is born
