September is here. Just a few more summer drinks, and then it’s off to pumpkin spice and caramel.  But for this Labor Day weekend we should still indulge in some fruity cocktails. Cognac you ask? Yes. This is an easy one. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this weekend on your deck, or in your backyard, or even with one last getaway. Wherever you are, treat yourself with this concoction.



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Hennessy (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • splash of orange bitters

In a highball glass lightly cover the bottom of the glass with orange bitters. Add ice. Combine Hennessy, Triple Sec and orange juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Give it a few good shakes and add it to the glass. Garnish with orange slices.
