Brandy Witch

A new dink..

Brandy Witch

60ml Brandy
20ml Strega
20ml Triple Sec
2 Dashes Absinthe
2 Dashes Boker's Bitters

Stir until Well Chilled
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with Luxardo Cherry

i made this drink as part of an ongoing experiment i am conducting. i am taste testing multiple orange liqueurs comparatively. Ultimately i will review them here on my blog and tell you what i find out. For a snippet-- i have been very surprised,
For this drink i used Baco Spanish Brandy-- lightly spicy, strong wood tones, and a creamy mouth-feel; the absinthe was Kubler (i tried it with 2 others but they were overkill); the Triple Sec i preferred (tried 3) was Hiram Walker (see what i mean? Surprise!).. The Boker's really tied all the flavors together-- Enjoy.
