About this Cocktail

An original warming winter cocktail from the stirandstrain.com website.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. Camus Cognac
  • 3/4 oz. Amaro Nonino
  • 1/4 oz. organic medium amber maple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice (Eureka lemon used here)
  • 3 dashes Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 2″ long strip lemon peel for garnish
Preparation:

In a mixing glass 2/3 filled with ice, add cognac, amaro, maple syrup, lemon juice and bitters. Stir to chill about 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass over ice. Express lemon oils from the peel over the drink and add the zest to the glass.

Lemony aroma that has a bright, clean start that eases into a warm, nutty sweetness. I served this cocktail over a large (2″ square) ice cube and found that the slow dilution kept this balanced the whole time I sipped it.

    What about the maple syrup? It's not mentioned in the prep.

    That was a test! That I failed... I just updated. Thanks for letting me know!
