Review:

Perhaps substitute ¼ shot Demerara sugar syrup for the sugar cube and all that muddling. Whether runny or dry sugar, this flip style cocktail is balanced and complex.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Timothy Eshing who says “'Le Coq d'Or' means 'the golden rooster' (hence the use of 'golden' ingredients); it is the title of a 1907 opera by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, after a story by Pushkin, itself after a story by Irving. Outside Russia the work is usually performed in French (hence the name and reliance on French ingredients). Each major ingredient is associated with a major character in the opera: the cognac and liqueur for the Tsar and Tsaritsa, the fruit juices for the Tsar's two doomed sons, the yolk for the golden rooster, and the bitters for the astrologer.
