Benedictine liqueur stands the test of time
Monks created Benedictine liqueur more than five centuries ago, but it stands the test of time. Made from 27 spices, Benedictine offers a delicate blend of orange, honey, cinnamon, clove, allspice and light ginger. Enjoy it neat or in an Algonquin: In an ice-filled shaker, combine 1½ ounces Plantation 3 Stars rum, ½ ounce Benedictine, ½ ounce Giffard blackberry liqueur and ¾ ounce lime juice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a blackberry.
