A southwestern aperitif

François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon

Named after the beloved Archbishop of Cambrai, François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon (1651-1715), author of The Adventures of Telemachus, (1699), this is a popular apéro in the Dordogne and Lot, combining one third red wine (usually vin de Cahors), one third eau de noix (walnut liqueur), and a third crème de cassis.
