Camille Pélisson – Golden Brandy Cocktail

From La Rochelle

Bar: Le Mary Lili


Golden Brandy Cocktail Recipe

Note from the bartender: Imagine yourself tasting the Golden Brandy perfumed with rosemary in the middle of a pine forest, it will make you travel between the Cognac region and the flavours of Asia. The roundness and the power of VS Cognac will awaken your senses, the vivacity of the lemon will balance the sweetness of the pepper syrup and finally the ginger beer will come to exalt the whole cocktail.

  • 7cl Cognac VS
  • 3cl Yellow Lemon juice
  • 3cl Timut Pepper Syrup
  • 7cl Pimento Ginger Beer

Method: smoke the rosemary. In a shaker, mix all the ingredients except the Ginger Beer which is added to the Tumblr after pouring. Decorate with a sprig of rosemary, a few straws and a straw.


Floran Telmon – Segonzac’s Soul Cocktail

From Monêtier les Bains, Hautes Alpes

Bar: Blue Bird Cocktail Bar


Cocktail recipe Segonzac’s Soul

Note from the bartender: “For the cocktail, I went for a seasonal cocktail with spices and orange that I clarified with milk to bind the ingredients and bring sweetness. The name is taken from the legend of the Segonzac knight at the origin of the double distillation of cognac which is perpetuated to this day. I have always been inspired and attracted by spirits and their stories before I started making cocktails.

  • 30 ml homemade clarified spicy orange juice
  • 15 ml Maraschino liqueur
  • 20ml Red Vermouth
  • 45ml Cognac V.S
  • Orange peel pressed

Garnish: orange zest and citrus flavored bubble
