Heering is mentioned on the Washingtonian.com:

For the aptly named Fall Foliage ($14) at Round Robin Bar, mixologist Jim Hewes layers burnt-orange Grand Marnier, red Chambord, and sparkling wine in a glass, then tops it with a dash of grass-green apple Schnapps. The Harvest Moon ($14) is a mix of Macallen malt whiskey, sweet vermouth, fresh orange and lime juices, and CHERRY HEERING LIQUEUR. Harrison’s Spiced Cider ($14), doctored up with Laird’s applejack, Grand Marnier, and cinnamon and nutmeg, will keep you warm once that first frost hits.
