Little Miss Annabelle

I named this variation on the Sidecar after the daughter of Alexandre Gabriel, who owns Pierre Ferrand. It has a rich mouthfeel for using such a small amount of sweetener“, Joaquín Simó writes in Death & Co´s book Modern Classic Cocktails.

Shamelessly I substituted in my version of Little Miss Annabelle the French cognac by a Southafrican 12 years old KWV potstill brandy, which in 2014 was crowned as the Worldwide Best Brandy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London.


2 ounces Brandy, 1/4 ounce Pear Liqueur, 1/4 ounce Benedictine, 3/4 ounce Lemon Juice, 1/4 ounce Sugar Syrup, 1 dash Peychaud´s Bitters


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. No garnish.


I love the mixture of cognac or brandy with pear liqueur. The addition of Benedictine, lemon juice and sugar syrup makes it a perfect end of summer drink!
