3/4 oz Cognac (Courvoisier VS)
3/4 oz Bénédictine
Juice 1/2 Orange (1/2 oz)
Juice 1/2 Lemon (1/2 oz)
Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass (Highball) filled with shaved ice (ice cubes). Top with soda water (1 1/2 oz), add a straw, and stir gently. I donated a wide orange twist to the recipe.
After the Thursday Drink Night, I decided to make the Brighton Punch that I had spotted in the Diner's Club Drink Book. I was drawn to the Punch for it had a New Orleans feel to it with the spirit combination reminding me of a Cocktail à la Louisiane and Vieux Carré hybrid with a classic Sling aesthetic.
