Take a look at these easy Cognac cocktail recipes that you can try at home and relish during the next Zoom party with your friends.

Bartending always seems very cool, doesn’t it? It does not just satisfy us with all the amazing drinks, but also with all the tricks giving us a visual treat. There is hardly anyone who has not been amazed by how these bartenders do what they do and that too with so much ease. And there will be many who might have tried doing the same. While performing their tricks at home is forfeited considering one can’t handle their mom’s wrath or even the mere idea of breaking something, one can always try to make a drink at home. Knowing how to make a classy cocktail always calls for great appreciation from friends. Cognac definitely has its own charm and is one of the classiest drinks that never disappoints. We all plan on having a house party but end up serving the usual to the guest.

French Connection ? 2 oz. Cognac 1 ½ oz. Amaretto ? Stir w/ice in a mixing glass; strain into a rocks glass over ice; garnish with a twist of lemon peel. Enjoy!! ? Although perhaps a little more high-brow than his usual choices, we still think that Popeye Doyle would have had a hard time turning down this contemporary classic. This is a beautifully simple evening option that pairs the warmth of Cognac with the subtle sweetness of Amaretto. We find that our 4:3 ratio delivers exceptional balance while exhibiting the distinct profiles of both ingredients quite nicely. Quality spirits make a world of difference here… ? #gautiercognac @disaronno_official #frenchconnection #frenchconnectioncocktail #unpetitverre #ahousefavourite #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktail #classiccocktails #vintagecocktail #vintagecocktails #kitchenbartender #homebartender #happyhour #cognac #amaretto #cocktailsathome #cocktailsofinstagram
