Special Rough

The name suggests a roughness, and the flavors certainly keep you on your toes. Pernod, even in small amounts is rough, but you can find your groove when you pick out licorice flavors and hang in there. This is definitely a drink to use cognac instead of your typical brandy. Courvoisier VS was my go-to for this one, and with the Pernod, that makes this a French cocktail.
  • 2 oz. apple brandy
  • 1 oz. brandy (Courvoisier VS used)
  • 1/2 tsp. Pernod (Absente Refined used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
