A split base of Cognac and Calvados is the foundation of this brandy sour variation. Lemon juice is the sour, with Bénédictine adding some herbal spice. Two bar-spoons of raspberry syrup made the drink a touch too tart, while splitting with simple syrup added a perfect mix of sweet and tart.

- 0.75 oz. Calvados
