About this Cocktail

Nicked from here:

At the recently opened Pour Vous in Los Angeles, Adrian Biggs created La Danse Diable as a variation on the Harvard (a cognac Manhattan), but arrived at Fernet Branca, the most widely available Fernet brand in the U.S, as an alternative for vermouth to lighten this stirred drink with a hint of bitterness and complexity.

  • 2 ounces Bache Gabrielsen VS 3 Kors Cognac
  • 1/4 ounce Fernet Branca
  • 1/4 ounce Maraschino
  • 1/4 ounce house-made grenadine (see below)
  • 2 dashes The Bitter Truth lemon bitters lemon twist

House-made Grenadine
Combine equal parts POM Wonderful Pomegranate juice and cane syrup.
Add in a cap-full of rose water and a cap-full of orange blossom water per every 16 ounces of POM/Cane batch.

Combine ingredients and stir with ice for 10 seconds in a mixing glass, being careful not to over dilute.
Strain into a chilled 5.5 oz. stemless wine glass and express oils from a lemon twist and garnish.
