Drink of the Week: Junior Cocktail

Sorry for the pictureless post. Something's hinky with Blogger (grr!) and I can't post any images right now. (Updated with picture on Sunday morning.)

Anyhoo ... this drink is really good (I say that a lot, don't I?). It requires that you own Benedictine, which according to the distiller's web site is "a judicious blend of the recipes created by Dom Bernardo Vincelli and by Alexandre Le Grand. It is made up of 27 plants and spices which come from the four corners of the globe." Benedictine also has the "zest of eternity." I didn't drink enough of these to figure out what that meant.

This cocktail tastes like a really good lime-flavored Jolly Rancher, and I mean that in the best possible way. It is not too sweet and has a remarkable full flavor.

Junior Cocktail

In an iced cocktail shaker, shake together:
  • 2 oz. rye
  • 3/4 oz. Benedictine
  • 3/4 oz. lime juice
  • dash Angostura bitters
Strain into a chilled martini glass.

it's what's left when you take the pith out of the rind of eternity.
