Recipe by Dr. Jenny

I got this cocktail recipe by Chuck Taggart on the gumbopages.com website. This drink is strong, but it is refreshing on a hot day. According to Chuck, "this drink was supposedly invented at a New Orleans joint called Santina's Saloon in the mid 1800s...The traditional spirit for this drink is brandy or Cognac, but bourbon has been known to be substituted." I used brandy, and Patron citronage for Cointreau. DH said simple syrup and sugar syrup are the same thing.
