Brandied Apricot

This is one cocktail I've been waiting all year for apricot season to make. It's actually good but a bit rich. I recommend cognac here because an American brandy can be too sweet and lack complexity. And I was right to wait. Don't bother with this drink without the fresh apricot as proof that you can own this drink.
  • 2 oz. brandy (Dusse VSOP used)
  • 1/2 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • fresh apricot slice
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the apricot slice.
