Cognac is very common around the world. The flavor profile ranges from many different tastes. Some people will go right for a straight cognac on the rocks or just in a glass served warm. There are many different and great ways to enjoy this drink. For one, a ‘Bora Bora’ will be a fun French cherry version for you to have. It’s made with cognac, vodka, cherry brandy, Picon (French aperitif), and ice cubes. If you like a little bit of a sophisticated sour flavor, then a ‘brandy daisy’ could be your drink. It has cognac, lemon juice, sparkling water, Grenadine, and ice cubes. Maybe you just want to feel like it is already time for the holidays; try the ‘Baltimore egg nogg.’ It’s very interesting and warm on the stomach. It’s made with cognac, Jamaica rum, Madeira, real sugar syrup, egg, crème, milk, Muscat, and ice cubes. Having a drink with friends can be turned into a little science experiment; if you’ve never had a ‘Café Brulot’ then you should definitely try it. You literally cook your own drink with all the ingredients. It’s made with 0.25 liter of cognac, a whole orange peel, a whole lemon peel, 8 cloves, 1 vanilla bean, 2 cinnamon sticks, 2 lumps of sugar, and half a liter of hot coffee. You mix all of the ingredients but the sugar and coffee on a fireproof bowl and start to heat it. Then add a limp of sugar, lit it melt, and then stir well. After that you can add the coffee. It’s a unique way to enjoy alcohol. You friends will admire the effort. There are plenty of simple ways to enjoy your cognac as well. Having a ‘champagne cocktail’ would be that drink. It’s made with cognac, sugar, Angostura, champagne, and a slice of orange. It’s simple yet very tasty. If you are ever at a bar and want to try something unique, just ask your bartender to create something fun for you. Enjoy.
