The red bottle
For nearly 200 years, the good folks of Peter Heering, a Danish distiller, have been crafting a sweet, cherry-flavored sip that’s known simply as Cherry Heering . While the red-hued drink has had a somewhat grandmotherly reputation — Queen Elizabeth II is said to be a fan — it’s caught on of late with the hipster set, especially because of the fact it works so well in a variety of cocktails. (And it’s a must-have for making a Singapore Sling.) For the holidays, the brand has come out with a special packaging ($30) that includes a bottle and two limited-edition glasses.
