Origins? Dunno. History? Beats me.
Thanks to Ben down at Zig Zag Cafe for turning me on to this one. I was looking for another good calvados cocktail, and this one fits the bill perfectly. Ben used a nice French calvados that gave the drink the taste of fresh fruit; at home, I tried it with Clear Creek’s Eau de Vie de Pomme, which is somewhat drier, but still gives a nice, layered experience.
- 1 1/4 ounce Calvados
- 1/2 ounce Dubonnet rouge
- 1/4 ounce Cointreau
- dash Angostura
Stir with ice; strain into chilled glass; figure out the rest.

Made with Daron Calvados tonight … next time maybe a touch less calvados and another dash of angustura. Or I might try peychaud. Might add a bit more complexity.
