A little less than two years ago I got introduced to cognac with Courvoisier. Cognac comes from the Cognac region in France, it is an ugni blanc (kind of grape) wine distilled two times and put in French oak barrels for a minimum of two years.
Cognac has the reputation to be for special occasion and it is indeed very true. Courvoisier’s most popular cocktail, Courvoisier champagne cocktail was even served at the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower!
The recipe is very easy and the perfect drink to have during the Holiday season with your loved ones. Warm and cozy with the taste of the Courvoisier cognac and festive with the bubbles of Champagne.
Below the recipe!
Courvoisier champagne cocktail
You need :
- 2,5cl Courvoisier VSOP (aged 4 years in a barrel) you can buy it HERE.
- 1 brown sugar cube
- 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
Out the sugar cube in a coupette glass. Cover the sugar with a few drops of bitters.
Cover with Courvoisier VSOP and slowly top with Champagne.
