I have to say, the irresistible cocktail was not irresistible. And now I have that song by Beyonce stuck in my head.

Benedict 
Ingredients: 1 oz Benedictine, 3 oz whiskey. Stir with ice and strain into a glass with ice; top with ginger ale.

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.

This cocktail seems very similar to several of the cocktails I’ve tried recently. Another case of a garnish making a “new” cocktail? Hm. Anyway, my dad took one sip of this and started wheezing. You’ve been warned.

Brighton punch
Ingredients: 3/4 oz each: brandy, bourbon, and Benedictine; 2 oz orange juice, 1 oz lemon juice. Shake with ice and pour the whole thing into a tall glass; top with club soda.

I don’t think I’m a fan of orange and lemon juice being in the same place together; for some reason it always turns me off. I also found that the orange juice overpowered the taste of everything else in the drink. Not my fave.

Monte Carlo
Ingredients: 2 oz rye whiskey (okay, I used bourbon, I’ll admit it. It was rye bourbon, though), 1/2 oz Benedictine, 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass.

This is sort of like a manhattan made with Benedictine. So far I haven’t been completely blown away by any Benedictine cocktail recipe. This one was okay, but Benedictine really does seem to go the best with brandy.

Marcus Sakey cocktail (?)
Ingredients: 2 oz Benedictine, 1 oz gin, 10 dashes Angostura bitters, a dash of honey, 1 egg. Shake together 20-30 seconds, then add ice and shake for another 15-20 seconds. Strain into a chilled glass and top with a pinch of nutmeg.

I know I swore I would never make another cocktail with an egg in it, but I saw this on Marcus Sakey’s FaceBook page and HAD to try it. It was super-tasty and I loved the addition of the bitters. Great holiday cocktail!

Froupe (should be Fioupe) cocktail
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz brandy, 1 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1 tsp Benedictine. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass.

The name of the cocktail was a typo in the Savoy Cocktail Book. It was actually named after a man called Fioupe who “is a familiar figure known all along the Riviera, by everybody, from prince to cabman.” Now he’s known as Froupe, I guess. Unfortunately the cocktail named for him was pretty forgettable.

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.
