Floc de Gascogne Cocktail: Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité

Next in the Bastille Day Cocktails series is a Floc de Gascogne cocktail, Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.

Floc de Gascogne Cocktail

Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité or L.E.F is an easy to make stirred cocktail using three ingredients. The base ingredient is Floc de Gascogne, an aperitif and mistelle made from fresh grape juice fortified with Armagnac. You can read more about mistelles in the Essential Guide to French Aperitifs, Mistelles, Liqueurs & Eaux de Vie.

The cocktail combines Floc with gin and triple sec in a light and refreshing stirred drink. Either a floral style of gin or a London dry would do well here.
