For the next four weeks our Wednesday recipes will feature cocktails made with Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal that I recently sampled during an educational and comparative tasting. I was wowed by the experience, some of you may even remember my tweets that day, and wanted to share the recipes that were shared with me.
This one was created by Kyle Ackley, the bar manager at the Lexington Social House.
