Tainted Love

This is a specially designed cocktail for Valentine's Day. I'm using D’USSÉ VSOP to make the ultimate silky smooth drink with the flavor of cognac and raspberries. For this one you can make two (double the recipe) and the whites of one egg. It goes best in a coupe or cordial glass. Dash angostura bitters on the egg white foam on top and give it a swirl with your bar spoon.
  • 2 oz. D’USSÉ cognac
  • 1/2 oz. raspberry liqueur (my homemade raspberry liqueur used, but Chambord works)
  • 1/2 egg white 
  • 1/2 tsp. Goya guava jelly
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • several dashes grenadine
  • several dashes Angostura bitters
Add cognac, lemon juice, grenadine and guava jelly in a shaker and muddle until jelly is dissolved. Add egg white and shake vigorously. Add ice and shake until chilled and strain into cordial glass. Add Angostura dashes on top of egg white and swirl the foam with a spoon.
