What comes to your mind when someone says B&B? A relaxing vacation or weekend getaway? No, no, no – we aren’t talking about a bed and breakfast! We are talking about Brandy and Benedictine – although you might find that it offers a similar escape. It isn’t often that you get to drink a cocktail that wouldn’t be possible without monks – but alas, they are the ones responsible for creating Benedictine, the herbal liqueur, in the 19th Century.

To this day, every bottle of Benedictine has the initials D.O.M., for “Deo Optimo Maximo”, which translates to “To God, most good, most great”. A stronger cocktail than most, many people in the 1930s began adding brandy to the liqueur to produce a drier taste, and a cocktail that has endured to this day.


  • 1 ounce brandy
  • 1 ounce Benedictine
  • Ice (optional)


  1. Simply pour both the brandy and Benedictine into a brandy snifter, and if you like, you can
  2. use a bar spoon to float the brandy on top of the liqueur, if you prefer your B&B to be layered.


  • Brandy snifter
  • Bar spoon

The B&B is meant to be enjoyed slow, and in this manner, is considered sort of a “cigar” of cocktails. It certainly is a strong one, so feel free to pace yourself. After trying one for the first time, you might want to toast the monks that created it! Drink your B&B responsibly.
