Well, maybe not all of you or even most of you but definitely one of you – Mr. T. Marshall Fawley III.
Yes, I came up with a drink that when I made it tonight I thought “this had none of the original ingredients I thought to associate with Marshall but I think it works!” Helped by the lovely and talented Ms. Sergi, we even came up with how to vary it up a bit.
So enough jibba jabba, let’s see the drink.
1 1/2 ounce cognac (Chalfonte VSOP)
1 1/2 ounce amer picon (Boudreau recipe, made by me)
2 dashes Marshall’s Moonshine Bitters
San Pellegrino Aranciata
Stir the first three ingredients over ice. Strain into a double old fashioned glass and top with the Aranciata.
The amount of aranciata will determine the drink. If you use the whole 6.75 bottle you get a nice, light drink, great for hot summer nights. Use less – like half the bottle, for instance, and you get a stronger drink, with a stronger bitter component and something more of a sipper.
