You might not be familiar with Armagnac yet are eager to try new cocktails.
Armagnac producers showcased vintage Armagnacs through a number of cocktail recipes at Whisky Live Paris 2012 earlier this month (September 8, 9).
One of them offers a taste of Vintage 1937 and the Emerald Coast.
Glass: Martini glass
Garnish : No
1/3 Izarra Green Liquor
1 drop of lemon
Method : Pour all ingredients in a mixing glass full of ice cubes, stir then pour using a strainer in chilled Martini glass.
Origin : This is a variation on Côté d’Emeraude cocktail recipe by the team of Coq à Paris (Opening October 2012).
It was created with Armagnac Bordeneuve 1937 which might not be available in the U.S.
