Today’s drink of the day is the Honeymoon Daisy. It is found in Hugo Ensslin’s 1917 book, “Recipes for Mixed Drinks.” For the liqueur of bitter orange, I recommend the eponymous bottling of Cointreau (of course), Luxardo Triplum (the best quality-for-money selection), or, my favorite, Grand Marnier Cordon Jaune. That last one is the liqueur that Grand Marnier makes to blend with Cognac brandy to make their better-known Cordon Rouge (technically an orange-flavored brandy liqueur). Since it isn’t distributed in the U.S.A., that selection is more for those in Europe. For the Calvados apple brandy, I recommend anything affordable with the words, “Pays d’Auge” on the label. Daron ‘Fine’ is what I use most often in a drink like this.
Anyway, here’s the drink. Enjoy!
