Jim Meehan, the man behind award winning New York drinkery PDT, was recently inspired by the unique complexities of D’USSÉ VSOP Cognac to create a refreshing tangy cocktail with notes of bright lemon and nutty amaretto. Instead of a delicious but expected spicy wintery cocktail, Meehan was inspired by the arrival of the warm weather to mix up this sweet and acidic cocktail, shaken and served in a chilled coupe glass. Jim Meehan is known around the world for his ability to create unique cocktails using the delicate flavor profiles of spirits as his base.
