Great Purim Gift Ideas Come in Mini Bottles of Cherry Heering and Coffee Liqueur

This week, Jewish families around the world are busy preparing for Purim. Finding the right costume, menu planning, and the preparation of Mishloach Manot/Purim Baskets have made my schedule even busier. This year, I am adding a mini bottle of Cherry Heering and Coffee Heering to my Mishloach Manot/Purim Baskets. Yes, Cherry Heering! This brand was very popular and found in the liquor cabinets of most Jewish homes and shuls in the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Yes, “Old School is the New Cool”! In fact, I would love to know your favorite Cherry Heering memory from those days, please share it in the comments below. These mini bottles are now available at a number of liquor store in the New York Metro area. If you are not in the New York Metro area, or your local liquor stores does not have them, it only takes one day to special order the Cherry Heering mini bottles.

After Purim, serve Cherry Heering cocktails at home at you next celebration or Shabbat dinner. Dairy or meat, no problem.
