Billed as a modern classic, I found this concoction on and it is quite an interesting combination… The name caught my attention initially – for obvious reasons, but the drink itself held my interest – a teasing interplay between the sweet, orange nectar flavor of the Grand Marnier and the herbaceous sweetness of the Bénédictine, all cut by the clean, briny quality of the Irish Whiskey.


I present The Brotherhood Cocktail:

1.5 oz Blended Irish Whiskey
.75 oz Grand Marnier
.75 oz Bénédictine
.75 oz Fresh lemon juice

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Twist a piece of lemon peel over the top and drop into the drink.
