Great Old Ones: Widow’s Kiss
In another of our cocktail flights we find one more drink whose bibliographic origins trace back to George Kappeler’s 1895 book, and probably to Kappeler himself. This one we find it in the Great Old One’s flight, and it’s the Widow’s Kiss: a delicately balanced cocktail with powerful ingredients rich in flavor and craft. Namely, those are the yellow chartreuse and benedictine, mixed here with Laird’s apple brandy and our monk bitters. Based on the now extinct Abbott’s bitters, our monk bitters are a made from 20 ingredients and aged in a barrel for six months.
