Hell Cocktail

Hell Cocktail
(6 People)

Shake (or stir, what does it matter?) 3 glasses of Cognac (1 1/2 oz Cerbois VSOP Armangnac) and 3 glasses of Green Crème de Menthe (1/2 oz Brizard White Creme de Menthe). Serve with a pinch of red pepper (Cayenne Pepper) on each glass.

Glasses are, of course, 2 ounces. 12 ounces, total, for 6 people, makes it 2 oz per serving.

A half an ounce of Creme de Menthe seemed like plenty to me so I upped the Brandy.

I put it in a liqueur glass, because, frankly, this is a shooter.

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.

  1. Uh, yeah, “interesting” is a good word for it.

    I’m just wondering what sort of party of 6 people are all going to be down with drinking a Hell Cocktail.

    It is just an “up” stinger with a pinch of cayenne, so not entirely madness.


    Something to think about the next time you have a group from Satan’s frat down at Reynolés Galley?
