Main Spirit Cognac
Difficulty Medium
Technique Dry Shake

Sometimes you need a cocktail that will raise your spirits and what better name for that cocktail than the Gloom Lifter. It’s basically a Cognac and Irish Whiskey sour (with a little Grenadine Syrup), served straight up – and if that doesn’t get your spirits up, we don’t know what will.
