Benediction | Cocktail Party


Benediction sparkling cocktail with Bénédictine, orange bitters or twist, and sparkling white wine

The Benediction is a gentle, charming cocktail from the folks at the Standard Hotel in New York City. It showcases Bénédictine, a honey-herbal liqueur made from a 500-year-old recipe.

Down the coast in Charleston, South Carolina, Daniel Blanton at Parcel 32 swaps the orange bitters for a swath of orange peel in a riff he calls the Holy Benediction. We do indeed prefer it the “Holy” way – but both versions are delicious, and we’ve included it both ways.

Bénédictine is fairly sweet on its own, so a drier sparkling white wine will do best.



Build in a chilled flute glass in the order given.
