saint jacques district

2 oz Cognac (Courvoisier VS)
1/2 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Grenadine
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
2 dash Regan's Orange Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Thursdays ago, I reached for Sother Teague's I'm Just Here for the Drinks book for something to wrap up the evening. There, I spotted the Saint Jacques District which was his Canadian tribute to a Quebec neighborhood, and I was drawn in for it reminded me of a Sidecar with elements of a Jack Rose. Once prepared, the drink broadcasted an orange oil nose over Cognac and Cointreau's orange aromas. Next, lemon, berry, and orange on the sip slid into brandy and orange peels on the swallow with a fruity pomegranate finish.
