Farmer’s Armagnac

Damon Boelte, Grand Army | Brooklyn, NY

A pun on the Farmer’s Almanac, the most ubiquitous bedside book apart from the Bible, says Boelte, in his home state of Oklahoma, the Farmer’s Armagnac builds on the classic Sidecar formula, simply swapping out Cognac for Armagnac and Cointreau for Bénédictine.

  • 1 1/2 ounces Armagnac
  • 1/2 ounce Bénédictine
