little miss annabelle

2 oz Pierre Ferrand Ambre Cognac (Camus VS)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Mathilde Pear Liqueur (Rothman & Winter)
1/4 oz Benedictine
1/4 oz Simple Syrup
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Fridays ago, I turned to a recipe that I had spotted in the Pierre Ferrand's New York City Cocktail Book and traced back to the Death & Co. Cocktail Book called Little Miss Annabelle. The drink was Joaquin Simo's 2009 riff on a Sidecar that superbly brought together pear and Benedictine to take the place of orange liqueur. Once built, the drink offered a Cognac and lemon aroma with a hint of pear. Next, the lemon and pear continued on into the sip, and the swallow shared Cognac and herbal notes with a spice finish.
