Over the weekend, we drove down to South Carolina to check out a liquor store called Frugal McDoogal, which has quite a selection of liquor in addition to beer and wine. For the past year or so, we've subscribed to Imbibe magazine, which we love, but so many of their recipes reference liquors that we have just not been able to find in North Carolina. One of those liquors is Cherry Heering, a type of cherry brandy, that's used in a lot of classic cocktails.
As soon as we got back home, we christened the bottle by making ourselves a Singapore Sling. It's got enough tartness to balance out the sweetness of the cherry brandy and the result is very refreshing.
Super simple to make too.
2 oz. Gin
1 oz. Cherry Heering
1 oz. Lemon Juice
3 oz. soda
Shake together the gin, cherry heering, and lemon juice with some ice, strain into a glass, then top with soda and enjoy!
