King Peter (Cocktail)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by alligirl

Taken from Christian Borgnaes on Claasified as a Danish drink, this contains cherry herring, (there are recipes on Zaar - cherry liqueur) a Danish cherry liqueur invented in the late 1700s or the early 1800s by Peter Heering. It is dark red and has a flavor of black-cherries that is not overly sweet. Posted for ZWT.

The lemon juice really brought this cocktail to fruition, at least for me. I took a sip of the cherry heering before I added the other ingredients and was not too thrilled. But once the tonic and lemon juice were added, it produced a rather nice tart drink that I enjoyed. Thanks for sharing your cocktail recipe, alligirl. Made for Zaar World Tour #6.
