Kind of like a dry metropolitan, but with fancy bitters and a cherry. Did really do much for me, and the cherry added nothing.

Most people think pirates’ favorite cocktail was grog, but actually they had more sophisticated taste than that. Grog was for the poor schmucks in the Royal Navy; pirates preferred (and could afford) the bumbo cocktail, which tasted much better. George Washington also liked bumbo cocktails and would serve this drink to his constituents on election day.
This cocktail was surprisingly tasty. You might want to add an ice cube to make it colder, but I would definitely for the person who gave me a few of these.

I think this cocktail absorbed the last of my Benedictine. Sadface. Anyway, it sounds great, doesn’t it? How can you go wrong with Benedictine AND whiskey AND ginger ale? In actuality, though, it reminded me of a horse’s neck. As in, it made me wish I was drinking a horse’s neck. Whomp-whomp. It was the whiskey that did it; I should have just added Benedictine and left it at that.

I really liked this cocktail! It was like a margarita, but with brandy, and you all know how much I love brandy. I also like that I could stir instead of shaking it, because I’m lazy like that. This is definitely going to become one of my more frequent cocktails.

B&B
Ingredients: 1 oz Benedictine, 1 oz brandy. Pour brandy into a snifter, then use the back of a spoon to “float” the brandy on top (I’m not sure why). Can be served on the rocks or straight-up.

This is an after-dinner cocktail like the ferrari or grandfather, except instead of using amaretto this uses Benedictine, a French herbal-infused liqueur with a cognac base. Perfect on a cold winter night! You can also buy pre-mixed B&B made by the Benedictine company at the liquor store.
