Bartender Caitlin Pfeiffer highlights Cherry Heering alongside both sweet and savory flavors, calling on falernum and manzanilla sherry in her rye whiskey-based cocktail. “[The drink] is about demonstrating how Cherry Heering can bring about its own bold flavor,” she explains, “while simultaneously enhancing the spice notes of [the] other ingredients.”
