When I was contemplating a cocktail for the Hennessy Privilege VSOP, I wanted to put a somewhat modern spin on a traditional (or maybe the right word is ‘classic’) cocktail. I began with a Leo Engels 1878 Brandy Crusta, and with a few additions and subtractions, I arrived at what I call the Medusa Coil.
1 1/2 oz Hennessy VSOP
1/4 oz Disaronno Originale Amaretto
3/4 oz fresh Lemon Juice
2 dashes Fees Cocktail Bitters
1/2 oz Simple syrup
Add the first five ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the sides frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a lemon coil
Add a small lump of ice to the center of the lemon coil
Please Enjoy Responsibly!
