The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess
Benedictine is one of those products which often is gathering dust at most bars across the country. Typically they will even have just a bottle of "B&B" instead of Benedictine, which only shows that they don't really know how to use this product. So I am always on the lookout for great cocktails which can illustrate the value that Benedictine can bring to a drink. There are a few different cocktails going by the name of "Derby", but the version I show here is one which I think is an excellent drink to introduce people to the potential that Benedictine provides.
2 oz bourbon
1/4 oz Benedictine
dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Stir with ice.
Strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with lemon twist.
