This is a favorite at Emeril's Delmonico. The addition of fennel is a unique twist that adds a hint of licorice.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cocktail


  • 1 tablespoon sliced fresh fennel
  • 1/4 ounce sage-infused simple syrup
  • 4 sprays Herbsaint liqueur
  • Fresh-squeezed juice of 1 navel orange
  • 1 1/4 ounces Grey Goose Orange
  • Strip of orange peel, for garnish


  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the fennel with the sage-infused simple syrup. Add the Herbsaint, orange juice, and Grey Goose. Add ice to the shaker, cover, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled. Transfer to an old-fashioned glass, garnish with a strip of orange peel, and serve.
