Serious Eats

This recipe from Chris Hannah of French 75 Bar in New Orleans was chosen as one of the 101 Best New Cocktails to be included in Gaz Regan's 2011 Annual Manual for Bartenders. It's fragrant and slightly mentholated, with hints of sweet orange and cinnamony spice. Not for the timid, but seductive all the same.
