Blue Train No 2 launches Aviation Week, which runs (or flies) through next Sunday, in honor of holiday travelers. There are at least two internationally known Blue Trains in the world. One is in South Africa; the other in France. The cocktail offered here is associated with France’s Blue Train. While the train stopped stopped running in 2003, the cocktail has taken on a life of its own.
Blue Train No. 2
1 1/2 ounce brandy
1 1/2 ounce pineapple juice
Chilled dry sparkling wine or Champagne
Chill a martini or large coupe glass. Pour brandy and pineapple juice into an ice-filled shaker and shake well. Pour into the chilled cocktail glass and top with champagne. Bon Voyage!
Tomorrow: Fly me to the moon…
