Ahhh spring. The smell of fresh cut grass and blossoming flowers, the sound of chirping birds and the comfort of mild temperatures-- wait, that’s not what’s happening! Why is it pouring rain out there?! Oh that’s right, the April showers are a real thing... But don’t be sad because so is this cocktail! Stay in and enjoy!

When drinking on a rainy day, a boozy coffee drink would be most people’s first choice. And while it is definitely an option, I recommend going with a brandy or cognac. It will warm you up from the inside out. Add an herbal liqueur to remind you that it is Spring after all and let your troubles melt away.

What you’ll need:
2 oz Cognac or Brandy (try Courvoisier VSOP)
1/2 oz Benedictine DOM/ Yellow Chartreuse (better for color)
1 oz Orange juice

How to prepare it:

Absolut Vodka recommends it on ice: Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Add Benedictine DOM, cognac and orange juice. Top up with soda water.

 

OR

Serve it up: Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and chill. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with an orange peel.

Now sit by the window and watch the rain.
