Libbey Speakeasy Coupe 8.5oz

Garnish:

Orange zest twist (a lemon zest twist is more classic). Some also like a sugared rim but hopefully added Pineau des Charentes richness renders this sweet rim embellishment superfluous.

How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

1 1/4 fl oz Rémy Martin 1738 Cognac
5/6 fl oz Triple sec liqueur (40%)
5/12 fl oz Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/3 fl oz Pineau des Charentes blanc
1/4 fl oz Chilled water (omit if using wet ice)

Review:

Complex and just a smidgen on the tart side of balanced so still very much a sour. Those with a sweet tooth may prefer to serve with a sugar rim.
