Turf Cocktail (Martini Variation)

Turf Cocktail Recipe

The Turf looks like an improved wet Martini with the addition of Maraschino and Absinthe, although it actually pre-dates the modern Martini. The Maraschino adds just that little touch of sweetness and the absinthe, even though it’s just a couple of dashes, gives the drink a little earthiness. The oldest reference to this cocktail goes all the way back to Harry Johnson’s Bartenders’ Manual in 1882. Like a lot of cocktails from that time, it’s gone through some changes but is still a tasty drink.

What’s the difference between Cherry Heering, Kirsch and Luxardo Maraschino liqueur?

Maraschino Cherry Kirsch

Most recipes will specifically call for one of three, the one best suited to the balance of the drink and it’s flavour profile. If you are making a cocktail that calls for a cherry brandy (ie. the Singapore Sling) then I’d recommend utilising either Kirsch or Cherry Heering.
