The Persimmon

Persimmons, the strange fruit that looks like an orange tomato, but tastes more like a melon/apricot turns out to be great in cocktails!
12   Persimmon (wash and cut into large chunks, remove greens)
1 12 oz Cognac (I used Masion Rouge, but any will do)
12 oz Triple sec, Cointreau
12 oz Gran Classico
34 oz Lemon juice
1 spl Simple syrup (1:1)
Muddle the persimmon chunks, add the rest of ingredients with ice and shake, double-strain into glass without ice. No garnish.
