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.
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.
