Mother’s Day Cocktail: Savoir Faire

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 12, 2019

Here is a wonderful treat for you to share with your Mom this Mother’s Day. This complex, yet elegant cocktail is meant to represent that special combination of love, guidance, strength and courage which our Moms continue to unselfishly share with us.

If you are wondering about the name, Savoir Faire. It is a French phrase which means being adaptable and adroit, basically knowing what to do in any situation. Surely that describes your Mom as well as mine.

Savoir Faire

1 oz Gautier VSOP Fine Cognac
1/2 oz St-Rémy XO Authentic French Brandy
1/2 oz Orange Juice
1/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Lime Juice
3/8 oz Sugar Syrup
dash Angostura Bitters
Twist of Orange Peel

Add the first seven ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a Twist of Orange Peel

Please Enjoy Responsibly!
