The Widow's Kiss Cocktail
Welcome the Cocktail Spirit from Small Screen Network. I’m your host Robert Hess. In this episode, we’re going to do the Widow's Kiss Cocktail but before we get to the cocktail, I want to talk a bit about the glass I’m going to be using for the drink. Now, this particular glass I recently purchased at a new store that’s selling new products, but it’s also an antique. In this particular case, the owner of the store found a company that had been doing glassware in the past back in the 1940s and they closed down and all their stock are put in storage and so he was able to purchase a bunch of glass stock the store is going to use. This is actually a—what’s called a blank. It was meant to be purchased by a crystal cutter and then cut and had fancy shapes and stuff to it. But frankly, the shape it has right now was what I love exactly as it is without anymore embellishment. Every one—you can find this little—and whoever buys like this for less than $5.00, I’ve got some great glassware.
But now, let’s get the drink started. What I’m going to do first is to have a little bit of water to the glass and then a couple of cubes of ice so it can be chilling while I’m actually making the drink. Now, for the Widow’s Kiss, we’re going to do 2 ounces of calvados. Calvados of course is a French apple brandy. And then we have 1 ounce each of yellow chartreuse. Chartreuse of course being a very herbal liquor normally you see the green chartreuse in stores and yellow chartreuse is harder to find. It's’ a little softer and the flavor in the green so if you only have green chartreuse, use less of it. We’re using an ounce of yellow so if you’ve only got green, I might use a little bit more than ½ of ounce for this drink, but it would be slightly different because the flavors aren’t quite exactly the same.
And then an ounce of Benedictine, another French proprietary highly herbal liquors so we’re going have a lot herbs going on here which I suppose to make this drink extremely healthy. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. And then we had a couple of dashes of angostura bitters. Again, lots of herbs and stuff in there too so oh boy, an apple a day and all these herbs. I don’t go either to the club for a long time. Now, stir to chill and we damp the cold water that was prechilling our glass and there we have the Widow’s Kiss Cocktail.
