The last drink Evan Zimmerman made me at Woodsman Tavern was the Indian Summer Sour. With the Calvados, lemon, and Benedictine, the drink reminded me a little of the Honeymoon Cocktail, so I was definitely game to try it. Once mixed, the Cognac aromas joined those of the Benedictine on the nose. The fruity lemon and apple sip was followed by a brandy and herbal Benedictine swallow. Though different from the Honeymoon Cocktail, it similarly could do no wrong and was perfect for the autumnal season.
