Cognac Based Cocktails

Cognac cocktails are a growing trend in cocktail bars worldwide. Cognac has a rich aromatic profile that is very fruity and floral, yet spicy, which lets you play with a variety of options on the ‘cocktail wheel’, revealing more of one particular aroma or another. It can easily replace other base ingredients in classic cocktails such as the Manhattan, Tom Collins, a mint julep or even a Mojito.
Cocktails such as the Sidecar, Sazerac – dry cocktails – are best enjoyed after dinner.
An Old Fashioned with XO is rich and full of flavor, and can be a perfect pairing with a dessert.
