Every Super Bowl party needs a signature cocktail! Here’s one for the Who Dat Nation. This gold highball is a twist on a classic New Orleans cocktail, the Roffignac. Go Saints!
Unlike many New Orleans cocktails, it’s easy to make in batches for a crowd. Just keep a mix of the cognac and syrup base in the fridge, and guests can pour themselves a drink and just top off with club soda.
- 2 oz cognac
- 1 oz apple-lemon syrup
- club soda
Fill highball glass with ice. Pour in cognac and syrup. Top off with club soda and garnish with a lemon wheel.
(enough for 10 cocktails)
1 ½ cups water
1 apple–cored, peeled and cut into pieces
zest of half a lemon (just the peel, no white pith)
1 cup sugar
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and boil. Strain out solids and pour the syrup into a container. Cool syrup and refrigerate. To make syrup last longer, add a 1/2 oz of vodka.
