Cognac Cocktail with Pear

24 June 2012 No Comment

The French Kings who came to Rheims for their coronations, received as gifts a pear and a glass of champagne. One of the most famous, Louis XIV, ennobled the grandfather of Jean-Baptiste Otard to the rank of “Baron James Otard”. The Noblesse cocktail is delicate: its pear flavours combined with those of cognac provide a taste of unequalled richness.

                    • 50ml of BARON OTARD VSOP Cognac
