Though he normally likes to use Swedish punsch in drinks with a tiki bent, Michael Phillips’ Biloxi Deluxe #2 is anything but: Built in a glass rinsed with Pernod absinthe, it stacks punsch alongside Cognac and bitters for a room temperature drink, finished with an expressed orange peel.
- 1 3/4 ounces Remy Martin 1738 Cognac
- 1/2 ounce Swedish punsch
- 1/2 ounce filtered water
- 2 dashes Regans' orange bitters
- absinthe (for rinse)
- Build all ingredients at room temperature in a wine glass lightly rinsed with absinthe.
- Express orange peel over drink and discard.
