BETTER Than the Original!
In celebration of the publication of my next book this week I thought I’d do something a little different this week on my craft cocktail. This picture was taken at the famous Raffles LONG BAR in Singapore. When I wast first at Raffles it was gritty and authentic. Today it looks more like the Walt Disney Imagineers have done renovations. Sadly, the volume of drinks sold has gone up massively with the renovations - and the ingredients are not purely fresh. Here’s my take on the original - and yes the brand names really matter.
1/2 oz Heering - Cherry Liqueur
2 oz Fresh Squeezed Pineapple Juice
Angostura Bitters (dash)
Pineapple & Cherries to Garnish
Add ice to a tall glass then 1.) Add all ingredients from the Gin to the Bitters and stir gently, then 2.) Add a splash of 7 Up, garnish with a pineapple slice and a cherry, and 3.) Enjoy.
