The Millennium Cocktail

1½ oz cognac
1 oz Paula’s Texas Orange (substituted for curaçao)
1½ oz unsweetened pineapple juice
a dash Angostura bitters
orange peel
freshly grated nutmeg

Dale says in his book he created this drink to showcase the Millennium bottling of Courvoisier, but we suggest you use a decent everyday cognac.

Combine ingredients with ice and shake, strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg. (Dale also calls for a flamed orange peel; I’ll leave that for the advanced class.)
