Benedictine was not an impulse purchase. It is used in so many classic cocktails that I am at the point where I needed to get it and get used to mixing with it. The impulsive thing I did in the liquor store was opt for the pure Benedictine and not the blended-down version B&B. At twice as much money, it should be mixed sparingly and it can be used in drinks that don't have a brandy base, which you can't do with B&B.

Here's how to make a Honeymoon:
  • 2 oz. apple brandy or applejack
  • 1 oz. Benedictine
  • 1 oz. lemon juice (3/4 oz. recommended)
  • 1 tsp. triple sec
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
