Rockin' World Go Round

If you liked the sound of the Vieux Gras but don't have any foie gras lying around, you can give the Rockin' World Go Round a try, as it is in fact what I did first.  I had the concept for the Vieux Gras and foie gras-infused Cognac in my mind for a while, but in the meantime I used the idea of the curry caramelized pear sauce as sweetener in a riff on the Old Fashioned in one of my drinks for the "Apples and Pears" TDN way back on Oct 15.  So here it is, using both apples (calvados) and pears:
Rockin' World Go Round
  • 1¼ oz Cognac
  • 1¼ oz Calvados
  • ¼ oz  madras curry-cinnamon-pear caramel syrup
  • 1 dash aromatic bitters
stir and strain into double old fashioned glass with one giant cube, garnish with slice of Cortland apple (they don't brown!). **Make the syrup by muddling or pureeing curry caramelized pear sauce and forcing through strainer, or use more like ½ oz and strain pear chunks.
