Today, in 1789, French revolutionaries stormed the Bastille, the Parisian fortress and prison. It was an act now celebrated as the opening event in the French Revolution. In recognition, we have pulled together a concoction of cognac, rose vermouth and a few drops of green Chartreuse. Vive la Republique, mes enfants!
1 1/2 ounces cognac
1 ounce Lillet Rose
1/4 ounce Green Chartreuse

Tasting notes: Revolutionary.
Tomorrow: Swing batter…
