Ties That Bind

a Sidecar riff of sorts
1 oz Cognac, Pierre Ferrand Ambre
1 oz Pineau des Charentes, Pierre Ferrand
12 oz Bénédictine
12 oz Bigallet China-China
34 oz Lemon juice
1   Lemon peel
Shake all ingredients with ice for 15 seconds, strain into coupe. Garnish with expressed lemon swath.
Had a nearly full bottle of Pineau and trying to using it up while hunkered down during the coronavirus lockdown. Part of my "Cocktails from the Corona Bunker" series. :-)
