The Ingredient Swap That Will Majorly Upgrade Your Espresso Martini
l intro 1674748830.jpg

Cognac is a spirit full of history and flavor, originating in the Cognac region of France and is warm and rich in taste (via The Crafty Cask). Similar to another French-specific alcoholic beverage, champagne, it is made out of grapes that can only be picked out of that specific location (via Cognac Expert). In terms of taste, Cognac Expert describes it as fruity, spicy, and bitter, and this diverse flavor profile makes it perfect to pair with the sharp coffee notes of an espresso martini.

Vinepair recommends using a high-grade Cognac in your next caffeinated cocktail, and there is a great variation for every single budget. Rémy Martin XO is a widely-known brand of high-quality brandy, but Town and Country Magazine names Hennessy Black and Bisquit & Dubouché Cognac VSOP as great cheaper alternatives. Or visit your local Costco, as there is a Kirkland variation of this popular brandy. The choice is yours. – * Source link
