Heering – Remember the Maine on andrewnicolls.com

…That Ladies and Gentlemen is why Charles Baker Jr. is a real Man. Bombs on the Prado, 3″ shells being fired from a nearby hotel and he simply describes it as a night of unpleasantness. He didn’t run for the nearest bit of shelter, but instead , combined 1 jigger Rye Whisky, 1/2 jigger of Sweet Vermouth, 1 to 2 teaspoons of Cherry Brandy and 1/2 teaspoon of Absinthe. He goes on to say one should “stir briskly in a clockwise fashion – this makes it sea-going, Presumably!”
Here is my preferred recipe for a Remember the Maine Cocktail:
50 ml van Winkle Family Reserve Rye
20 ml Carpano Antica Formula (Italian Vermouth)
2 barspoons/10 ml Cherry Heering
1/2 barspon/2.5 ml Kubler Absinthe
Stir over plenty of ice and strain into a chilled coup. Garnish with a twist of Lemon zest.
In the words of Charles Baker Jr., “Treat this one with the respect it deserves, gentlemen.”
