Heering Cocktails

Heering Coffee Liqueur
Heering Cherry Liqueur

Heering is a sweet, full-bodied liqueur, produced without any artificial ingredients, colours or flavours, from a top secret Heering family recipe. The Cherry Heering is dark red in colour, with a hint of brown hue and a rich powerful nose of fresh cherries and warm spice. Its extravagant quality and deliciously smooth full flavour makes it a key ingredient for many cocktails, particularly the infamous Blood and Sand and well known Singapore Sling. The Coffee Heering is a recent addition to the line, introduced in 2008. See below for more details about Heering cocktails and how to make them for yourself.

 

Blood and Sand
Heering Cherry Liqueur

Blood and Sand for its name from the 1922 film starring Rudolf Valentino as a bullfighter. The earliest reference to the drink is in the Savoy Cocktail Book, first published in 1930. If also appears in "Cocktail Bill" Boothby's World Drinks and How to Mix Them, from 1934. These early guides - as well as recent ones, such as Gary Regan's The Joy of Mixology - call for making the drink with equal parts scotch, fresh orange juice, cherry brandy, and sweet vermouth.

"one of Denmark's biggest contributions to the bar. Today's barkeeps are exhuming classic Heering drinks, such as the 1920s-era Blood and Sand..."

Cambeltown Cocktail
Heering Cherry Liqueur


By Mike Aikman from Bramble, Edinburgh

The Campbeltown cocktail may not be hot, but is still a winter warmer. The key spirit here is Scotch Whisky, notoriously difficult to mix, something that prompted Aikman to take up the challenge. The result? A dangerously heady concoction of cherry liqueur, green chartreuse and Scotch Whisky from the Campbeltown region.

Heering Cherry Liqueur

The Singapore Sling was created at Raffles Hotel at the turn-of-the-century by Hainanese-Chinese bartender Mr Ngiam Tong Boon. Till today, in the Hotel'd museum, vistors may view the safe in which Mr Ngiam locked away his precious recipe books, as well as the Sling recipe hastily jotted down on a bar-chit in 1936 by a visitor to the Hotel who asked the waiter for it. My Ngiam Tong Boon concocted the very first cocktail to achieve global fame by mixing the ingredients and serving as shaken, not stirred, on ice in a cocktail glass.
