Dream Cocktail

Roy Orbison should supply the soundtrack to this post. Here is a velvety smooth cocktail that is even silkier with the addition of Remy Martin 1738 cognac. Pernod's presence is so light it is almost imperceptible, but without it, the Dream would be an uncomfortably sweet treat. Pernod has a way of nudging cocktails toward a plot, an experience with a beginning and end. That licorice flavor gives traction to the grape of brandies and a freshness where you might otherwise wallow in richness. This is the cafe dream cocktail.
  • 2 oz. brandy (Remy Martin 1738 used)
  • 1 oz. triple sec (Luxardo Triplum used)
  • 1/2 tsp. Pernod
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
