Recipe by NorthwestGal

Years ago, I discovered this wonderful cognac-based drink with a distinctive French origin. It has only two ingredients, and I have experimented with different brands until I discovered what combination I preferred the most--but do experiment on your own to find out what brands you prefer. It's more of an after-dinner drink to sip and enjoy as you slowly savor every last bit of it. And I really do hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Northwestgal, for an adult after dinner drink worthy of cozying up to the fireplace with a good British mystery novel! I used Planat Cognac (a gift from a dear friend) and Cointreau. I look forward to mixing it up with other brands, as you say, for experimentation; this time I went for my faves! Made for my Fall PAC co-host!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ounce cognac (I prefer Courvoisier)
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur (I prefer Grand Marnier or Triple Sec, but others work well too)


  1. Layer the two ingredients in a short brandy snifter or cordial glass, and enjoy.
