"Holiday Sauce" Cocktail for Thanksgiving

Wish I could say I came up with this one. Proves that cognac is an under-utilized strong spirit in cocktails. Well-balanced and appropriately tart. Besides, no one ever uses up all the cranberry sauce anyway....




1.5 oz Hennessy V.S
.5 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Heaping Tablespoon of Cranberry Sauce (the kind you would have with turkey)
1 dash fee brothers cranberry bitters (optional)
Garnish: Orange Twist, Cinnamon sugar rim

Glass: Coupe or martini

Method: Add all ingredients to a shaker tin with ice, shake until well chilled.  Take the coupe or martini glass and rub the rim with a fresh cut lemon, now dip the rim in a plate of cinnamon sugar (1 part cinnamon to 1 part white sugar).  Strain the cocktail into the rimmed glass and garnish with an orange twist.
