How to make:

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

Garnish:

Physalis (cape gooseberry)

Comment:

Rather like a Daiquiri, yet subtly sweetened and spiced.

Origin:

Adapted from a recipe by Tony Abou-Ganim. He was inspired by his late cousin Helen David's penchant for a nightcap after a special occasion; her favourite was Bénédictine. This drink is named after Helen's bar the Brass Rail in Port Huron. Helen's memory is commemorated in the 'Helen David Spirit Award' which is given for lifetime achievement at the annual Tales of the Cocktail.
