La Cote Basque Cocktail

Forbidden Fruit, like Amer Picon, is a French spirit that is no longer in production. I'm trying to do as many drinks with my homemade version as I can while I have some left.

That brings me to this rich cocktail. I stayed with the drier gin, MurLarkey ImaGination, because I knew that Forbidden Fruit is rich with honey and cognac. There is also an unusual bitterness of oranges and the pomelos and citrus peels in the Forbidden Fruit.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination used)
  • 1/2 oz. Forbidden Fruit (Homemade version used)
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec (Leroux used)
  • several dashes orange bitters (Hella used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
