Treaty of Cambrai

Description
An unusual combination, not for everyone, it makes a pleasant digestif drink. The name gives a nod to the treaty that ended the War of the League of Cognac, between France and the Holy Roman Empire. It also ties in rather nicely to the French and Italian ingredients in the drink.
