French Sunset

By Guillermo Neffke, Editor

In this recipe from Romain Fornell’s Azul restaurant, we discover a classic old fashioned cocktail with cognac in the starring role.

Being an old fashioned, it is considered an after dinner drink, best enjoyed in good company after a meal, when you are not ready for the evening to end

Preparation time

5 min

Ingredients For



Add the cognac, Bénédictine D.O.M. liqueur, fig liqueur and 2 dashes of cardamom bitters to a mixing beaker. Add a generous amount of ice and stir with a bar spoon.

The fig liqueur can be replaced with pear liqueur.


Strain into a glass that has been cooled in the freezer, leaving the ice in the mixing beaker.

The drink can be garnished with a shiso leaf, which adds a herbal note.
