This cocktail splits the difference between the recent hardly-a-cocktail two-ingredient recipes and, well, medicine. But the first cocktails were made by apothecaries, so maybe he’s right on here!
Ripped from the headlines, Donald Trump may be burnt by his choice of lawyer, who is currently being investigated for various financially-related crimes including campaign finance violations. The FBI raided his office on Monday as part of an investigation not necessarily connected to the Russian interference investigation, but spawned from it. Of course, Trump has many other choices he may be burnt by in the future — his life may soon not be peaches and cream.
199. Burnt Brandy and Peach
(Use small bar glass.)
- This drink is very popular in the Southern States, where it is sometimes used as a cure for diarrhea.
- 2 oz. of Cognac.
- ½ table-spoon of white sugar.
- The above two ingredients burnt in a saucer or plate.
- 2 or 3 slices of dried peaches.
- Place the dried fruit in a glass an pour the liquid over them.
BN: This was good! Wouldn’t really call it a drink, though, as it was more about the solids than the liquids. Sort of a peachy sugar syrup. Tasty at least! Can’t say for sure about the diarrhea cure. Also, I’m not sure we “burnt” correctly. A lot of the brandy evaporated, and I never really got much of a caramel flavor. Maybe I wasn’t supposed to mix them together, and instead burn separately? I have no idea.
PiC: This was a tasty alcoholic snack, and would definitely be good over ice cream. [BN: Agreed.]
