Since it is a rainy day I decided to go through my liquor cabinet to hopefully organize it more ergonomically…if that’s even possible! While sorting through bottles of spirits and wines that haven’t been touched in years, I stumbled across a bottle of Cherry Heering.
When is the last time you used this liqueur? And what do you really know about it? I confess that I was a little intrigued, so I did some research.
This remarkable liqueur created by Peter Heering has been produced in Denmark since 1818. And, the best part is that it is ALL NATURAL! Cherry Heering is made by soaking lightly crushed Danish cherries and a blend of spices in neutral grain spirits. It is then cask-matured for up to five years adding sugar during the aging process. It is a deep ruby color and actually tastes good…no candy or cough drop flavor that one expects from a cherry liqueur. See more at http://www.cherryheering.com/
Try pouring a little Cherry Heering over ice cream for a change of pace!
If you have any mixology drinks or other recipes that you would like to share that incorporates Cherry Heering, please do.
It was an uneventful Saturday. Work and organizing my home were the tasks at hand. Gloomy skies eventually gave way to some sun, but not in time to have a swim. The clock was ticking and I had to prepare for the evening.
I dashed out of the house, already late for my dinner date and left my cell phone charging on the kitchen counter.
As I was driving to my friend’s home, I realized my error, but actually found it quite “liberating” that I was not tied to the rest of the world for the evening.
It was a lovely dinner with wine not worth mentioning here (sorry, my dear). However, the “pour” later on in the evening is worth a shout out.
Taylor Fladgate 30 year old Tawny Port was the highlight of the evening, excluding the company of course. It had a beautiful dark golden color with a subtle aroma of fruity perfume and a smoky splash. I have enjoyed Taylor Fladgate in the past, but this particular bottle was quite distinctive. I tasted honey, dried apricots and nutty undertones. It was rich and satisfying with a very long finish. Bravo!
Of course, now I want to try Taylor Fladgate 40 year old Tawny Port! Anyone want to share?
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
