Cognac Sazerac Cocktail

Did you know that one of the oldest known Cocktails, The Sazerac, originally used Cognac?
The use of Cognac ended with the Phylloxera epidemic which devastated French vineyards, which meant that Cognac was very difficult to buy, also the prices increased dramatically in that time.

Pierre Ferrand – 1840 Original Formula – Revival of the Cocktail Cognac

Yet back in the nineteenth century, when the art of cocktail as we know it first came together, one thing the both the barkeepers who created it and their eager customers would have all agreed on was that nothing made for a better mixed drink than good cognac.
