The French Connection is a relatively simple, somewhat common mixed drink that makes a stunning after dinner drink or nightcap. The Cognac adds warmth to the chilled drink and the flavor mixes nicely with a quality amaretto liqueur. Drinks as simple as this depend more on high-end spirits than those with more mixers, so do yourself a favor and choose a nice Cognac (VSOP , XO or older) and amaretto (ie. Di Saronno, Gozio). There is also a French Connection #2 and a French Connection Coffee.
- 1 1/2 oz Cognac
- 3/4 oz amaretto liqueur
