  • relax the Suze next time — maybe try Hardy as well — ★★
  • Made as listed. A little challenging but very nice! Should come back and try as a sour as listed in the comments. — ★★★★
  • Interesting - I so rarely use Chambord that it's a nice change of pace to taste those flavors. — ★★★★

Added 3/4 lemon, and used instead of Chambord a fat 1/2 oz of premixed fortified syrup made of pomegranate juice, raspberry cordial, Cherry and cassis liqueur: The Sun King turned in a very fine sour. Shaken.

I made this for the first time tonight using Bache-Gabrielsen Tre Kors (VS) Cognac. This is a beautiful cocktail.
