Valentine's Day = House of Cards Season 2



Who needs an overcrowded restaurant, flowers that die, and Hallmark cards that make even sentimentalists cringe when you have Frank Underwood, political conspiracy and a bottle of booze? Exactly, you don't.
For those of us who are not partaking in the over-fluffed holiday designed for couples "in love" we'll be indulging on the finer things in life: epic emotional drama and a well made drink.
For the true Underwood fans we have the perfect cocktail--sweet, witty with a nice little bite: 


• 1 part D’USSÉTM Cognac

• 1 part orange juice

• 1 part rye whisky
• 1 part sweet vermouth
• Dash Peychaud’s Bitters
• Dash Angostura(R) aromatic bitters
• 1Ž2 part BÉNÉDICTINE(R) Liqueur
