Kachka’s Red Heering

Yield: 1 Serving

Our Red Heering is inspired by one of my favorite cocktails, Remember the Maine. Instead of rye whiskey, we use beet-infused gin, which was the first infusion we ever made for Kachka. The flavor is really focused on the cherry and beet coming together with the absinthe—anise and beets being so complementary to one another.

The Holiday Cocktail Collection

In honor of the holiday season, we asked restaurants from around the world to share recipes for winter cocktails that you can replicate at home. These five drinks will take you across the globe—from Birdie G’s in Santa Monica, to Esmé in Chicago, Kachka in Portland, Ditta Artigianale in Florence, and La Factoría in San Juan.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. beet-infused gin
  • .75 oz. Dolin Dry
  • .25 oz. Heering Cherry Liqueur
  • .25 tsp. absinthe

For Beet Gin

  • 750 ml. Tanqueray gin
  • 2 cups freshly shredded, raw beets
