Bastille, cognac cocktail

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!
