The Vineyard cognac based cocktail revisited with olives

There are different versions of the vineyard cocktail recipe. We have revisited this cocktail recipe with young cognac and olives. This is how we will enjoy a cocktail that is both fruity and floral with citrus notes, partly thanks to lemon, but also thanks to olives as a garnish. Originally, the Viineyard recipe is served with two amarena cherries.


Vineyard Cocktail



1 oz of Cognac. For our personalized recipe we recommend Merlet cognac.

1/3 oz Guignolet

1/2 oz Pineau des Charents

0,15 oz Pernod Absinthe

1 lemon zest


Garnish: two skewed olives and a lemon zest.


Glass: Old fashioned



Pour the ingredients directly into the serving glass filled with ice cubes and stir with the bar spoon. Squeeze a lemon peel over the glass, place it inside and decorate with the olives. Serve and enjoy.



Do not drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
