Having a beautiful cocktail is simply a lovely way to enjoy an excellent cognac. This is consistent with the theory of the B&B cocktail-to combine top-shelf brandy with the best liqueur, and create a great drinking experience. These two drinks are extremely simple, but they shine due to their simplicity; even ice is unnecessary, which allows the drinks to come together in a true, unprocessed way. Cognac and Grand Marnier are the two ingredients in the beautiful, nearly as popular as the B&B. The drink was formerly called French Connection No. 2 or, simpler, a cognac and Grand Marnier. A sweet citrus note is infused into your cognac through the orange liqueur, adding a more mellow dimension. It’s the perfect drink in which you can highlight more luxurious cognacs. It is most commonly served neat, although some drinkers like to add a single ice cube.
