Bombay Sapphire Sloe Gin Cocktails a Festive Treat

Sloe Gin, with its ruby red colour, is particularly festive and here are some great ideas from Bombay Sapphire for delicious sloe gin drinks. If you haven’t already made your sloe gin with Bombay Sapphire we strongly recommend Plymouth Sloe gin.

Shake 35ml Bombay Sapphire Sloe Gin, 20ml Amontillado Sherry, 20ml freshly squeezed lemon juice and 10ml Cherry Herring (cherry liqueur) in a cocktail shaker with cubed ice, then pour into a highball glass. Top with crushed ice and garnish with seasonal fruit, a mint sprig, lemon zest and a slice of orange. A perfectly balanced tipple incorporating sweet and dry notes, with a rich nutty sourness
and an elegant sweetness.

Bar of the Week Double Review: 1534 and Mary Queen of Scots

….Tartan embellishments are countered with spray paint; golden flowers grow out of booths and a cage separates the diners in back from bar guests ordering Scotch-laden cocktails like the classic Blood and Sand (Glenlivet 12 yr, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering, orange juice and a flamed orange peel). ….

Cherry Heering on living/restaurants


The sun may go down before 5, but at least happy hour starts around the same time. A cocktail or two will warm you right up, like the winter sangria at Eleven, a potent mix of cabernet sauvignon, Cherry Heering, apricot Brandy, cranberry, maple whisky liqueur and fresh fruit. At Salt of the Earth in Garfield, bar manager Summer Voelker is putting the finishing touches on juniper eggnog with Stregga and bourbon, while sister restaurants Brix on the North side and Toast! Kitchen and Wine Bar in Shadyside are serving up mulled wine. A fine glass of liquor feels warming all on its own, and you could spend all winter working your way through the whiskey offerings at Piper’s Pub on the South Side, or the tequila list at the new Verde Mexican Kitchen and Cantina in Friendship.

Wherever you go this season, sit and sip awhile and enjoy the feeling of being cozy and well-fed. You may even find yourself wishing that winter would never end.
