The Widow’s Kiss, “…Sweet, complex and darkly golden, thought provoking and introspective.” Still thinking about these words by Ted Haigh in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails I am already sipping this wonderful drink.


1 and 1/2 oz. Calvados, 3/4 oz. Chartreuse (I took the yellow one), 3/4 oz. Benedictine, 2 dashes Angostura Bitters (I took Bitter Truth’s Jerry Thomas’ Bitters instead as I wanted to counter-balance this sweet drink with very fruity and very bitter flavors), garnish: a cherry


Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Widow's Kiss
