The bottom line
The Cognac is made from passion and perseverance from the distillation up to the aging process.
This is what makes Cognac special—its flavor and versatility that are enriched more and more over time.
If you want to enhance the spices and barrel flavors of the cognac, the colder you must serve it.
On the other hand, if you want it to taste more fruity and with a little less alcohol, serve it warm.
The secret to an excellent Cognac mix is balance.
You must have the right touch and measurement in your ingredients to harmonize the different flavors you incorporate with your brandy.
Enjoying the Cognac can never be easier, even in the comfort of your own home.
Just pick a recipe, check your liquor bar, and voila!
There goes your mix of eau de vie.
