Saucy Sue Cocktail.
1 Dash Apricot Brandy. (1 dash Rothman and Winter Orchard Apricot Liqueur)
1 Dash Absinthe. (1 dash Verte de Fougerolles Absinthe)
1/2 Calvados. (1 oz Calvados Groult Reserve)
1/2 Brandy. (1 oz Chateau Pellehaut Armagnac)
Stir well and squeeze orange peel on top.
Well, there’s an awful good reason why Sue is a bit Saucy: All she drinks is booze!
As much as I’d like to say this is awesome, it really doesn’t pass the test of, “Would I rather drink these spirits straight or in this cocktail?”
Maybe if I was using crap Brandy and bad Calvados, this might be an improvement. But with this Armagnac and this Calvados, this is just a sad waste of quality spirits. Not advised.
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.
