B-B-Cocktail-Recipe The Bottle Club

The B&B cocktail was first served at the fabled 21 Club in New York City in the 1930's. It had only two ingredients, Benedictine and brandy.

Benedictine is a honey and herbal liquor developed by a Benedictine monk in France over 500 years ago. The initials "D.O.M." found on the bottle stand for "Deo Optimo Maximo," Latin for "To God, infinitely good, infinitely great." Originally created as medicine, this versatile liqueur contains 27 different herbs, spices and flowers.

Brandy is a sprit distilled from wine or fermented fruit juice and aged in oak barrels. It has a subtle sweetness, and the longer it is aged the smoother it is. Brandy originated in France in the early 1300's, and like Benedictine, was a medicinal drink at the time.
