Big Boy Cocktail

Big Boy Cocktail

1/2 Brandy (1 1/2 oz Korbel VSOP)
1/4 Cointreau (3/4 oz Cointreau)
1/4 Sirop-de-Citron (3/4 oz Homemade Limoncello)
(dash lemon juice)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

After finding a couple DIY recipes for “Sirop-de-Citron” I realized the procedure for making it is about the same as for limoncello, so, instead of buying a bottle of Monin Lemon Syrup, or making it myself, I subbed in limoncello.

I also couldn’t quite face drinking this without a dash of lemon juice. Still pretty sweet.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
