I thought this would be an appropriate post for the start of the week. Oh Monday, you get us every time. Don’t worry about those nasty Monday Blues, I may or may not have something rather delicious heading your way. Ok, Ok, I’ll stop with the try-hard mystery, I really do have something delicious headed your way. Bisquit Cognac and Fitch & Leedes, want you, yes you (as long as you live in Cape Town – sorry other SA peeps!) to win a rather swell little hamper for yourself.
I’ve been known to enjoy a tipple of cognac or two in my time. Yes, cognac is a fine, fine drink, one that most believe should simply be enjoyed neat. But did you know, according to Bisquit, that the majority of cognac drinkers prefer their cognac over ice, in tall glasses, mixed with soda water or even cranberry or orange juice? I didn’t know that either, you really do learn something new every day. In saying that, enter Bisquit’s new BFF – hello fizzy Fitch & Leedes -the perfect partner for creating the ultimate long cognac cocktails. Cognac cocktails I hear you saying. Yes, it’s a real (delicious, oh so delicious) thing. Bisquit and Fitch & Leedes have partnered up to show you just how delicious the long cognac drink really can be (and trust me, it can be). Cognac has a unique balance of fruit flavours and is aged in French oak which gives the drink its characteristic colour and aroma. A splash of lemonade or ginger ale seem to highlight those flavours perfectly.
So if you fancy your hand at some cocktail making fun, I suggest Bisquit’s Summit Cocktail:
- 40ml Bisquit V.S
- 1ooml Fitch & Leedes lemonade
- 1 slice of fresh lime peel
- 1 slice of fresh ginger
- 1 long thin slice of cucumber peel
- Pour the Bisquit Cognac into a glass.
- Add one slice of fresh ginger and lots of ice.
- Top with lemonade.
- Stir lightly and garnish a lime peel and cucumber sliver.
I mentioned earlier that there’s a competition for the Cape Town folk. So what’s up for grabs?
- 1 x 750ml bottle of Bisquit Cognac (Classique)
