Remember The Maine
The Remember The Maine cocktail sits somewhere between an ever some slightly sweet Manhattan and a Sazerac, thanks to the dash of absinthe in the drink. As a dark and boozy cocktail fan, we expect that alone should be enough to illicit a pavlovian response from your fine self.
The cocktail is lifted with a small dose of Cherry Heering, Denmark’s original cherry liqueur, first created in 1818. Prince Charles was famously embroiled in a school time scandal when he was caught ordering a glass of the rich and syrupy liqueur at a hotel near Gordonstoun School at the tender age of 14.
It is worth noting that this cocktail is strictly for adults…
