Here begins another sprint into the French liqueur zone. There were so many French cocktails that I wanted to make, I decided to do a short series. The Froupe is supposedly named after a Frenchman who liked his cognac this way. There's not much else known about him, except his name wasn't Froupe but something that probably rhymed with it.

I should say that I was listening to French cafe music and reading Balzac's Father Goriot and my cat is named after Victor Hugo.
  • 2 oz. cognac
  • 1 1/2 sweet vermouth
  • 1 tsp. Benedictine
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
