Papa Ghirardelli

benedictine May 19, 2020

As summer is approaching so is the season for cooling long drinks. We like this bitter-sweet one a lot and we're extra happy it uses pisco as the base spirit.⁠

We also appreciate herbal Benedictine liqueur a lot. Even though there is a bitterness to it there is also sweet notes, and it mixes very well with the red bitter liqueur that we used.⁠
