Cognac Old Fashioned
For this Old Fashioned-inspired cocktail, Bon Temps beverage director Mike Lay mixes Cognac with rich simple syrup, bitters, maraschino liqueur and absinthe.

2 oz. Cognac (Lay uses Dudognon 5-Year Selection)
¼ oz. maraschino liqueur
¼ oz. rich simple syrup (2:1)
4 dashes Angostura bitters
4 dashes orange bitters
4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: rocks
Garnish: lemon and orange peels

Prepare a rocks glass by coating with a small amount of absinthe. Combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing glass and briefly stir to chill without adding much dilution. Strain over a large ice cube in the prepped glass, then twist the citrus peels over the drink and use as a garnish.

Mike Lay, Bon Temps, Los Angeles
