Mandarine Sour

Mandarine Sour

Mandarine Napoléon Liqueur is a 10-year aged cognac flavored with Mandarin orange peel, spices and herbs. Originally created for Napoléon Bonaparte, the liqueur was said to be one of his favorite drinks. The recipe was discovered by a Belgian chemist nearly a century later and he modified and began bottling it in 1892.

Tried this one during the holidays...absolutely delicious even tho I added a little simple syrup, (my personal taste preference), but I certainly recommend this "sour" for something really different.
