This is the second recipe created by the Lexington Social House’s bar manager, Kyle Ackely, that I sampled recently. I loved watching him grate the nutmeg expertly over my glass and what the surprise of tarragon did to complement this cognac-based cocktail. I’d also never had Velvet Falernum. Truly unique and refreshing.
