Viering

Viering cocktail with genever, cherry brandy, and sweet vermouth

We’re in love with the malty, funky flavors of genever – but until recently there weren’t many cocktails that took full advantage of its old-world character.

Enter the Viering, a creation of New York City bartender Eryn Reece. Reece named it for the Dutch word for “celebration,” and the name fits – it’s a wonderful tribute to the Netherlands’ best spirit.

Reece doesn’t specify oude-style or jonge-style genever, but it’s fantastic both ways. She does, however, call for Carpano Antica for the sweet vermouth – its complex, flavorful blend of herbs and spices gives it the backbone to stand up the syrupy, rich flavors of Cherry Heering, a classic Danish cherry brandy.
