This is the only classic drink devoted entirely to cognac. Skip the sugar rim if you don’t like your drinks too sweet.
- 2 ounces Cognac
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- ½ ounce simple syrup
Rim a coupe glass with sugar (or don’t… this is America, and we’re not gonna tell you what to do). Shake all ingredients with ice until chilled, strain, and serve straight up.
While whiskey is usually the go-to in spiked coffee drinks, Cognac’s natural flavors of honey, brown sugar, caramel, and creamy coffee make an even smoother drink. Serve this at your next brunch party to add authentic swag.
- 4 ounces coffee
- 1 ounce Kahlua
- 1-2 ounces Cognac
Pour the Kahlua and Cognac into your coffee, stir, and wake up.
