May Daisy, by Phil Ward is a Cognac based cocktail. This is still relatively unusual in drinks so the recipe got us intrigued and we needed to make it.
And it’s good! The Cognac is a powerful spirit, that is somehow tamed in this cocktail, both by the citrus but also by the herbal Chartreuse. The result is a strong but still refreshing cocktail with slight tiki vibes.
2 oz Cognac
1 oz lemon juice
0,75 oz green Chartreuse
0,75 oz simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a white wine glass. Add ice and a mint sprig.
