Widow'S Kiss Cocktail With Calvados Apple Brandy Yellow Chartreuse Benedictine Herbal Liqueur And Angostura Bitters

Introduced in the renowned 1895 cocktail book Modern American Drinks by George Kappeler, the Widow’s Kiss captures attention with its harmonious fusion of two exquisite French herbal liqueurs and apple brandy. Bartender Jim Meehan’s reinterpretation of this timeless concoction strikes a chord with modern palates, doubling the apple brandy and reducing the liqueur quantities. By doing so, Meehan expertly transforms the Widow’s Kiss from an after-dinner libation into an enticing beverage that ventures into the realm of the beloved Old Fashioned.


2 oz CALVADOS, Or apple brandy
