This may be my second favorite cocktail but I do not think I have ever admitted that to anyone except my best drinking friend Eric Farrell. We had stayed up all night after Saturday's bar service and went for breakfast and I enjoyed this very cocktail at nine in the morning on a Sunday (sugar rim and all) garnished with the shocked glances of church goers having their eggs and coffee before redemption. Try it sometime. I make mine very dry because I drink through the sugar rim. If you do not like the idea of that or you think that makes it a “girly drink” then you can kick rocks. I don’t care if it's Sunday or not.
Rinse a Cobbler Shaker with Cointreau and add:
50 ml Cognac
25 ml Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
10 ml lemon juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe.
Double strain (mouth feel) into a chilled sugar rimmed glass.
Note: The shaker rinse is strangely crucial for the aromatics of this drink. Try one with and without and you will see. Then don’t operate any heavy machinery or call up your ex girlfriend. These are sneaky.
