Many people may balk at the thought of mixing a good Cognac into any drink, but there is so much potential with one like Courvoisier VSOP. Brandy has made appearances in some of the great drinks of all time and one of the keys to mixing it into cocktails is to keep it simple. Old school drinks like the Brandy Daisy and Brandy Smash prove this and the Snow Honey follows suit.

What makes this drink stand out is the use of clover honey. This delicious flavored honey adds a unique and subtle embellishment to the rich flavor of Cognac and warm milk. The result is a lovely and soothing hot drink.
