The Cognac appellation offers for Valentine’s Day a gourmet cocktail signed Baptiste Bochet, mixologist and Cognac Educator*.
To sublimate the palate for two, Baptiste Bochet and the Cognac Appellation brings us the “Saint 2021” cocktail.
“For this cocktail, you will need a Cognac with tonus and nice woody notes that will be sublimated by the spicy notes of cinnamon. The Cognac will thus dance with the raspberry liqueur and its most complex notes will combine marvelously with the more subtle and intense, even slightly earthy, scents of raspberry. The lemon will bring a touch of balance. Not too much is needed to preserve all the deliciousness of this cocktail perfect to share between lovers“.
How to prepare the Saint 2021 ?
*You will need a shaker.
4 cl VSOP Cognac
2.5 cl raspberry liqueur
3 cl of lemon
1.5 cl of cinnamon
1 egg white
Garnish: raspberry skewer or orange zest
Type of glass: coupe
If you use egg white for foam and texture, add it after you have gathered all your ingredients in your shaker.
Shake hard once for 20 seconds with a single ice cube to create a strong emulsion and obtain a nice foam that will last throughout the tasting.
Shake again for 10 seconds with lots of ice cubes, then strain and serve in a nice cocktail glass.
Decorate with a raspberry skewer or simply with orange zest.
