suhm heering float

Peter Frederik Suhm Heering2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Old Monk Rum
1/2 oz Bitter Science Mole Bitters
1 Egg Yolk

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Double strain into a Highball glass. Top with 4-5 oz of Maine Root's Root Beer, and add a straw.

After Silvertone, I made my way over to No. 9 Park where bartenders Tyler Wang and Sam Olivari were behind the stick. For a first drink, Tyler suggested a root beer and Cherry Heering Highball that he had created called the Suhm Heering Float. When I inquired about the "Suhm" part, Tyler explained that the inventor of the cherry liqueur's full name was Peter Frederik Suhm Heering. Also in the mix were vanilla-spiced dark rum, a healthy dose of mole bitters crafted by Sam's Bitter Science label, and an egg yolk.

The Suhm Heering Float proffered cherry notes along with darker aromas from either the Old Monk Rum or the chocolate bitters. A carbonated caramel sip contained the egg yolk's richness, and the swallow showcased the cherry, root beer, and chocolate notes with a drier finish.  Overall, the Float was complex but all too easy to drink.

Did you cut down on the chocolate/mole bitters?
