y control

1 1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac (PF Ambre)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup
1 tsp Yellow Chartreuse
1 tsp Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Wednesdays, I returned to Kindred Cocktails to make another recipe that I had bookmarked called the Y Control. It was created by bartender Rafa Garcia Febles in New York City in 2014 as an "elaborated Brandy Daisy." The idea reminded me of No. 9 Park's take on Harry Johnson's Brandy Fix but that was with Green instead of Yellow Chartreuse. Here, the Y Control proffered a Cognac, lime, and pineapple bouquet. Next, lime with pineapple's brightness on the sip jumped into Cognac, cherry, pineapple, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
