Turn to France for cocktail inspiration

It's Friday and it's January and I feel like something fresh and new to drink...so I flipped through the stack of cookbooks and recipes that have been piling up on my desk. Turns out I have all the ingredients to make this sexy drink, so guess what we'll be sipping on later this evening?

Le Grand Syndicat

Created by Irish mixologist Shane Mulvany, who worked for chef Marcus Wareing in London, England and, these days, can be found at Bar Alo in Toronto. This recipe was printed in The Grand Sling Book: A Tribute to Great Cocktails, from Grand Marnier.

1 oz Grand Marnier

3/4 oz Aperol

3/4 oz Tequila Reposado

1/2 oz Cocchi Americano

3 dashes Bittered Sling Moondog Bitters

Stir over ice in rocks glass. Garnish with an orange twist. Serves one.
