Tipple Tuesday: Benedictine & Brandy

Today’s tipple is a simple 1:1 combination. I hesitate to even call it a cocktail. But it is delicious and a wonderful complement to your holiday cheer.

Making the drink is simple: Pour equal parts Benedictine and Brandy into a snifter. Done!

Tasting notes: Warming, herbal, and sweet, with notes of honey, rosemary, nutmeg, sage, anise, and orange peel.

Most liquor stores carry a pre-mixed version of this called B&B, but you should skip out on that and mix it yourself. This lets you pick your brandy of choice, which you can also enjoy on its own or in another wonderful holiday cocktail, the Brandy Alexander. And you’ll have leftover Benedictine to make Vieux Carres.

    While I like a B & B, I prefer the Rusty Nail—a 1:1 mixture of scotch and drambuie.

      Also a good option. Perhaps that will be a future Tipple!
