King of brandies may not be as stereoptyed as you may think, heard many would comment it as “just an aged spirit for after dinner sip” or “for the older crowd”, “too strong, not for me” kind.
however, Mixologists have been discovered a variety ways to shake things up and made cognac into the hipsters category.
In London for example, I recently spent one of my most awesome nights at the London’s “A Listers” club, Chiltern Firehouse, their private VIP bar were mixing amazingly delicious cockatil with cognac as a base, love it if you are little bored over gin or dark rum for a while.
Below I am sharing 3 recipes inspiration after discussing and tasting with Alex Chatte, the head Mixologist at BiBo HK, some really tasty cognac (we are using Martell here) based cocktail which you can impress yourself and friends at home:
1) Side Car
Cointreau with a sugar rim on the glass
2) Noblige Sling
Fresh Pear Juice
Green Apple Liquor
3) Borderie Old Fashion
Shake into sparkling shaker and double strain
Perfect for the coming weekend!
Martell, one of the oldest cognac houses, forged by passion and knowledge passed through the Martell family since 1715 – creating cognacs that have been enjoyed and cherished for three centuries.
