everything nice

1 1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac
3/4 oz St. George Spiced Pear
3/4 oz Pineau des Charentes
1/2 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
The drink that Andrea requested at Brick & Mortar was the Everything Nice that was perhaps dubbed after the "sugar & spice" nursery rhyme to describe girls given the recipe. In the glass, Everything Nice's orange oils accented a fruity grape aroma. Next, grape and orchard fruit on the sip led into Cognac on the swallow with a pear, allspice, and clove finish. Just like the rhyme, the Everything Nice was a touch on the sweeter side, and it did not let down on the spice aspect.
