Named after the Gene Hackman film of the same name, this two-ingredient cocktail is easy to make and pairs wonderfully with dessert.

2 oz Maple Leaf Spirits Lady of the Cask brandy

0.75 oz Sons of Vancouver Amaretto

Garnish: lemon zest

In a rocks glass, combine ingredients and add ice. Stir until chilled. Express oils from the lemon zest over the surface of the drink, then drop the zest into the drink. Serves 1.
