Chrysanthemum's the Word
Like this Recipe
Honestly this drink came to be because I love using Laird's apple brandy (being from NJ) and I love chrysanthemum tea. Sometimes that's all the inspiration needed.
1½ oz Apple Brandy (I recommend Laird's 7½ Year)
½ oz Cognac of choice
1 oz Chrysanthemum Tea
½ oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz ginger syrup
1 dashes ginger bitters (I used Infuse Ginger Bitters)
1 dash orange bitters
A lemon twist to garnish
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
Alternatively, you can freeze the chrysanthemum tea into ice cubes to use in the shaker instead of adding it to the ingredients.
