Remember the Danes Cocktail

Courtesy Peder Schweigert, general manager, Marvel Bar, Minneapolis.


Heering Cherry Liqueur

The smallest Nordic country features plenty of farmland and orchards, where a particularly aromatic variety of cherries grow. These cherries are crushed, distilled and aged in oak for up to five years, which yields a sweet-tart, ruby-red liqueur. Created by Danish merchant Peter Heering in 1818, Heering Cherry Liqueur adds depth to cocktails from the Blood & Sand to the Singapore Sling.

The Cocktail

This warming riff on the classic Remember the Maine cocktail offers pleasing hints of cherry and almond from Heering Cherry Liqueur. Schweigert recommends the rich, spicy notes of Punt e Mes to complement the Heering, or you can substitute your favorite sweet vermouth.


2 ounces American whiskey
¾ ounce Carpano Punt e Mes
¼ ounce Heering Cherry Liqueur
⅓ teaspoon St. George Absinthe


Combine all ingredients in stemless wine glass. Stir together with ice.
