The Sweet Talking Son cocktail by Caitlin Ryan was crafted to highlight an American brandy brand not available in our part of the world. But we thought using Cognac would also work.
And it did! This is such a cool cocktail where the brandy is is combined with mint (that’s not muddled) and maple syrup. It’s an aromatic and unique combo that is actually a bit hard to describe. But trust us when we say it’s good.
We also like the deep and rich colour the drink gets, thanks to the brandy. Served on a big ice cube inside the rocks glass the drink looks very fresh and crisp.
Sweet Talking Son
2 oz brandy (we used Cognac)
1 oz fresh lemon juice
0,75 oz maple syrup
2 mint sprigs (1 for shaking, 1 for garnish)
7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Combine everything (but the one mint sprig for garnish) in a shaker and shake with fresh ice. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with the remaining mint.
