The Be Sweet cocktail is a strange mix: whiskey, Parfait d’Amour and ginger ale. Parfait d’Amour needs strong counterparts, since a little bit of it can go a long way.
And it finds them in this drink. The whiskey brings out the orange notes in the liqueur, and the ginger ale tones down the flowery notes. The overall flavor is complex and hard to describe – earthy, flowery, citrusy and just a bit spicy.
- 1 ounce whiskey
- 1 ounce Parfait d’Amour
- Ginger ale
Put a few ice cubes in an old-fashioned glass. Pour in the liquors, and then fill the rest of the way with ginger ale.
