Click here to subnmit a recipe for possible inclusion in next year’s Annual Manual

Adapted from a recipe by Geoffrey Wilson, Loa, New Orleans, LA.

“A very, very simple cocktail inspired by Chris McMillan’s “keep it simple, stupid” motto. I love Zacapa, and I wanted to make a fall/winter cocktail even though it gets cold for like a week down here in N.O.” Geoffrey Wilson.

45 ml (1.5 oz) Zacapa 23 rum

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Belle de Brillet pear brandy

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Gran Classico Bitter

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

gaz sez: A simple cocktail nailed in three complex steps. Great ingredients, beautifully balanced. You learned well from Chris McMillan, Geoffrey. You kept it simple, and proved you ain’t stupid. Well done.
