Cognac in cocktails – yes we think it works really well. There is something luxurious with Cognac isn’t there, just like with Champagne. And even if only three quarters of an ounce is used, the Cognac in this drink still shines through and define the whole experience. Mixing it with Drambuie, a type of whisky liqueur, is quite clever. It adds sweetness while enhancing the boozy Cognac at the same time. And yes, that awkward tiny amount of leftover honey syrup in our fridge was finally put into use in this cocktail!
