The French Connection

The French Connection

 This week on Episode 56 of The Charlie Tonic Hour we try some Conjure Cognac and discuss the history of cognac, brandy, and rappers. In addition to sipping it neat, I decided to make a cocktail with it. This classic cocktail is simplicity itself to make. The official International Bartenders Association recipe is to take equal parts cognac and amaretto mixed in a high ball glass over ice.  That is the way we made it on the show but after trying it I think it could work well to mix the cognac and amaretto in a two to one ratio to cut some of the sweetness. This is a traditional after-dinner cocktail that appears to be making something of a comeback according to a quick perusal of the internet. As I noted in the show, it does have the advantage of looking like a tougher drink than it really is and since it is 100% alcohol it is fast acting as well. Although, since it is all alcohol, the quality of the drinks matters.
