As served to Holmes and Watson, no doubt.
1 oz Cognac
1 oz Gin
12 oz Ruby Port
2 bsp Bénédictine
1 ds Bitters, Bittermens Xocolatl Mole
1 bsp Tea (Dry leaves. Ideally Kawakawa Fire, but anything with a bit of bite will do)
Stir with ice, strain, coupe.
The name comes from the proportions of the three principal ingredients, plus the 'B' of Bénédictine.
A further addition to the list of steampunk-themed cocktails we're assembling at the Hawthorn Lounge.
