“The Boulard Calvados is beautifully dry but has aromas of subtle fruits including apples, passionfruit and pineapple. The pineau des charentes has a similar fruit-forward nose, but lends a bit of sugar to balance the alcohol in the Calvados. The proportionally tiny bit of Cynar 70 in the mix gives the drink a bit of heft and provides a “bass note” for the sip.” Doug Brickel
3/4oz (45ml) Boulard Calvados
3/4oz (45ml) Pierre Ferrand Pineau des Charentes
1/4oz (15ml) Cynar 70-Proof
Add ingredients to a stirring vessel and add cracked ice. Stir quickly to chill and dilute a bit, approximately ten seconds in total. Strain into a teacup, express a lemon twist over the top, and discard twist.
gaz sez: This drink falls right into the BOLD THINKING category, mainly because of the use of Pineau des Charentes, but the balance in this baby is very finely tuned, too. Nicely done, Doug Brickel!
