Most of them can not serve you alcohol after 11pm, and you have to be out of the bar by 12 am. who wants to stop partying at midnight on a Saturday night? You are better off getting the alcohol delivered to you at home, and then you can party with your friends until the wee hours of the morning. As long as you keep things to low roar, the police won’t show up and shut down the party.

Remember to drink responsibly, and please never drink and drive. The life you save may be your own.

  1. Hello John, thanks for these wonderful cocktail ideas you have shared and I have to admit it’s really something we want to learn to do because of its importance in the different occasion that’s it can be served. Looking at the Hennessy Ginger Cocktail wouldn’t the ginger cause a different taste ?

    1. the ginger should compliment the fruit flavor of the cognac. And even enhance  its flavor. That particular recipe is one of the easiest to make, seeing as how there are only ingredients needed to make the cocktail. If you happen to try it for yourself,  please let me know how it was.

  2. I love love cocktails a lot and that you can tell us about the recipes that we can make with cognac is fantastic.

Wow this is such a good thing. I have never come across such a good post about cocktails made with cognac. I did consume cognac as a drink, mostly French, and I can say that it is a drink that gives a dose of sophistication. I can’t imagine what the combination of cognac with other fruit flavors looks like, but it seems tempting. This apple thing seems tempting to me.
