Cocktail of the Week: Electrum

Electrum

2 oz Deau VS Cognac
0.75 oz Marie Brizard Apry
0.25 oz Licor 43
0.5 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
Angostura Aromatic Bitters

Add cognac, apry, Licor 43, lemon juice and four (4) dashes of Angostura to mixing glass with ice.  Shake well, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with one (1) additional drop of Angostura as a float.

Creator’s Notes: Obviously this is a variation on a Sidecar.  I wanted to work with a lot of different spice characteristics, hence the inclusion of Licor 43 and a heck of a lot of Angostura.
