The Millennium Cocktail

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

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.)
