As Jim Meehan said when he gave us this recipe, "This hybrid of Audrey Saunders Gin Gin Mule substitutes cognac for gin and adds falernum and cucumber. Milk & Honey barman Sam Ross has a similar drink made with Bourbon dubbed the Kentucky Maid: consider this her spicy French sister."
Created in autumn 2007 by Jim Meehan at PDT, New York, USA for an art gallery opening hosted by John Pellaton of Hine Cognac.
