Review:

Based on cognac and named after one of the three wise men, this cocktail uses three spices – ginger, cloves and saffron (in the Bénédictine) and a good dash of red wine (after all, in later life the baby they visited reputedly turned water into wine).

History:

A Christmas cocktail named after one of the three wise men created in 2011 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
