Sour lemon juice and bitter Punt e Mes balance out the sweet cherry liqueur in this bourbon cocktail.
What to buy: Cherry Heering is a Danish cherry liqueur invented by Peter Heering in the early 1800s. It is viscous and sweet with an intense dark-cherry flavor. A little goes a long way, so use it sparingly in cocktails like a Singapore Sling.
