The Burnt Fuselage is an easy-to-make, deliciously rich cocktail that hails from 1927’s Barflies and Cocktails book. Despite being nearly a hundred years old, it has a nearly-modern flavor profile; a bit sweet, a bit jammy, and light enough to still be a refreshing tipple despite its all-spirits construction.
- 1 part Cognac or Brandy
- 1 part Orange curaçao or Shrubb
- 1 part Dry vermouth
Stir all ingredients with ice until well-chilled. Strain into an ice-filled short glass. Express a lemon twist over the drink and drop in as a garnish.
