Salander's Smile (Ruby Red version)

This is my original cocktail recipe for the Steig Larson character Lisbeth Salander. It is a cherry and vodka drink served up with only Swedish ingredients. Absolut vodka was always an important ingredients, as was Swedish Cherry Herring liqueur. Now I'm making it with Absolut Ruby Red vodka, which makes the drink far brighter and more complex--more like a gin cocktail.
  • 2 oz. Absolut Ruby Red
  • 1 oz. Cherry Heering
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • lemon twist
Combine all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain in to a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
