“LA” Duque

Dave Bletsch, Cork & Kerry, Rockville Centre, NY and Floral Park, NY

Upon first tasting the brandy, I thought vanilla; however, the Quintinye vermouth screamed summer fruit (berries), so I went with a take on a classic “Harvard” build utilizing Peychaud’s to accentuate the berry flavors in the vermouth. Yum.

1.5 oz (45 ml) Gran Duque D’Alba Brandy de Jerez

1 oz (30 ml) La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Rouge Vermouth

2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

1 orange twist, as garnish

Stir over ice, and strain into a chilled coupe. Squeeze the twist over the drink and add as garnish.
