Cognac Summit


This is the perfect cocktail for celebrating on New Year's Eve. It's warming but cold and refreshing with a taste of ginger. I've been taken by flu for the last few days and now it's turning into a cough, which makes me crave for cognac (otherwise I detest it...)
 

Cognac Summit Cocktail (makes one)

a spiral of lime zest (or just some shavings like I did)
a few thin slices of fresh ginger
2 cl cognac (VSOP)
6 cl lemonade (e.g. Sprite)
a long shaving of cucumber peel
ice
 
Place the lime zest and ginger slices in the glass. Pour in 2 cl cognac. Lightly press the lime and ginger with a pestle to extract aromatic juices. Add a couple ice cubes, 6 cl lemonade and the cucumber peel. Sip while admiring the fireworks.
 
☆☆☆Happy New Year! ☆☆☆
