  • 1/2 teaspoon benedictine
  • 1 dash Peychaud bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1/3 jigger rye whiskey
  • 1/3 jigger cognac brandy
  • 1/3 jigger Italian vermouth

"The benedictine is used as a base and also for sweetening the cocktail. Dash on the bitters, then add the rye, brandy, and vermouth. Put several lumps of ice in the barglass. Stir. Twist a slice of lemon peel over the mixture. Drop in a slice of pineapple and a cherry if you wish and serve in mixing glass."
