Well hello there cocktail fan. I nearly didn’t see you there. Fancy a drink? Then you’re in luck, as you’re just in time for another #MasterofCocktails.
This week we’re going to make a ‘Widow’s Kiss’ recipe from the excellent PDT Cocktail Book by Jim Meehan. If you haven’t got this tome in your library, I heartily suggest you amend that oversight. Look, I even gave you the Amazon link and everything. Get to it. Chop chop.

List of Ingredients
- 60ml of Shipwreck Single Cask Cider Brandy
- 7.5ml of Yellow Chartreuse
- 7.5ml of Bénédictine D.O.M. Liqueur
- 2 Shakes of Angostura Bitters
For our Widow’s Kiss, we’re swapping out the Applejack for a rather excellent single cask Somerset Cider Brandy:
So let’s start with that superb ingredient – 60ml.
Into a stirring glass, along with a handful of ice.
Next up – 7.5ml Bénédictine D.O.M. Liqueur:
Then 7.5ml of Yellow Chartreuse.
Finally, 2 shakes of Angostura Bitters.
Give it a good old stir – 30 seconds or so…
I can’t tell you how good this smells – even from a few feet away. Apple Brandy? Massively underused if you ask me…
Strain into a chilled coupette glass, and serve. No Garnish.
The Widow’s Kiss. A superb digestif, but so incredibly fresh due to the base spirit. Wonderful.
Now, write down these ingredients in your copybooks, as you’ll need them for the next #MasterofCocktails.
Next week, you’ll be needing these…
Basil, St Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Cocchi Americano, Chapel Down Vintage Reserve Brut and a lemon.
