|A cocktail with Cognac? |
Can you give me any ideas?
Often considered exclusively as an after dinner drink in Europe, Cognac is in fact drunk with water during the meals in Asia. Connoisseurs also insist on the properties of Cognac as an aperitif, over ice or as a cocktail, or as a great winter warmer. A dash of Cognac adds a special touch to the most exquisite recipes, whether meat, fish or deserts, as well as to dishes that may be flambéed with Cognac, like lobster or Crèpes Suzette.
We have received the following recipes from Mazanti-Andersen, a lawyer from Denmark whom we would like to thank.
These drinks should be served in a tumbler. Don't forget the ice!!
