We could wax lyrical about the provenance of this cocktail but the simple truth is, it’s a rich and very boozy take on the old fashioned cocktail but with an underlying taste of a childhood favourite of ours, the Crunchie bar.
The cocktail invokes the humble honeycomb treat whilst respecting our rules for making a truly great and sophisticated drink. With Buffalo Trace Bourbon and a decent amount of Seignette Cognac at its core, the sweeter honeycomb syrup and fair-trade, Fair Cacao Liqueur are in good company.

20ml Seignette Cognac
