This drink is a collaboration between my friend and fellow bartender Jacob, who is a gifted cocktail mage in his own right.
1 oz Cognac
1 oz Dry White White (Vinho Verde)
0.5 oz Grand Marnier
0.25 oz Dry Vermouth
0.25 oz Calisaya Liqueur
0.25 oz Honey Syrup
0.25 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
2 dashes Scrappy’s Cardamom Bitters
0.25 oz Aquavit (Rinse)
Prepare a chilled martini glass by rinsing with Aquavit. Add all other ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice and stir for 20-30 seconds. Toss out Aquavit and strain into the glass. Zest the top of the cocktail with a lemon spiral and place into the glass as a garnish.
