This cocktail compliments the richness of Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac. Amer Picon adds a lovely bitter note, paired against the maraschino liqueur.

  • Garnish: Pinch of freshly grated blood orange zest on top of ice.

Stir all ingredients with ice until the liquid is icy cold, and then serve over ice in a large coupette or martini glass.
