#DOTW: Cognac Sunset

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.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
