A Warming Drink for a Cold Winter's Night: More Scaffa!

January 10, 2017




In keeping with my recent love affair of "Scaffa style" (see BLOG entry for January 6, 2017:  La Strada: A New Cocktail in the "Scaffa Style"), I offer a warming drink for this cold night. Cognac is the predominate player in this command performance. Hennessy, with Belle de Brillet (the cognac-based pear liqueur), plus Bénédictine. Add to this, the bitter yet flavorful bite of Campari (as well as its brilliant color), and grapefruit bitters, and you have a remarkably smooth, soothing drink to sip in front of the fire.








1 part Hennessy V.S. Cognac 

¾ part Bénédictine

½ part Belle de Brillet Pear Liqueur
½ part Campari

dash of Fee Brothers Grapefruit bitters

Build in a brandy snifter without ice.
Stir. Garnish 
with an orange twist.
