The Decade

The Decade Cocktail was invented by Willy Shine of the 1534 bar in NY. I came across this drink on the finecooking.com blog.

the Decade
1.5 oz Cognac (Hennessy)
1 oz Amaretto (Disaronno)
2 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
.25 oz fresh lemon or lime juice (Lime)
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a pineapple leaf (I didn’t have any at the time).

Notes:
The cognac adds depth and complexity which is balanced out by the nuttiness of the amaretto and the fruitiness of the pineapple juice. The amaretto and pineapple juice lend it a tropical flavor making this an all year addition to my stable of go to drinks.
