What is better than a Honeymoon? A Perfect Honeymoon, isn´t it? 🙂

This month´s Mixology Monday hosted by Southern Ash is about perfect symmetry. I like this challenge, thank you!

mxmologoReason enough to mix the Honeymoon Cocktail with equal parts of Calvados and Applejack. Drink recipes exist with either Calvados, resulting in a mellower version, or Applejack adding some more zing to the drink. But the mélange of both is just perfectly balanced. I garnished my Perfect Honeymoon Cocktail with a flamed grapefruit peel.


1 oz. Calvados, 1 oz. Applejack, 1/2 oz. Benedictine, 1/2 oz. Orange Curaçao, 1/2 oz. Lemon Juice, garnish: Flamed Grapefruit Peel


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Flame a grapefruit peel over the drink and drop it into the glass.
