Years ago, I discovered this wonderful cognac-based drink with a distinctive French origin. It's more of an after-dinner drink to sip and enjoy leisurely. It has only two ingredients, and I have experimented with different brands until I discovered what combination I preferred the most. But do experiment on your own to find out what brands you prefer.
