- 1 1/2 oz. cognac
- 3/4 oz. sherry
- 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 oz. Royal Rose Saffron Syrup
- 2 dashes Boker’s Bitters (if you can't find Boker's, Forrest says Angostura will do)
- Add ingredients to a pint glass or shaking tin 1/2 full of ice. Shake vigorously. Serve straight up in a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
"This sunny, sophisticated drink lived up to my expectations, or lack thereof, as the case may be :) It’s unlike anything I’ve ever had. It’s a nice strong drink, thanks to the cognac, but with a subtle sweet nectar element with the saffron syrup. The saffron isn’t overwhelming, and you probably couldn’t identify it as such, but it adds a nice complexity to the drink. The fresh lemon is the perfect touch." -The View from Great Island
