Quick Facts

Cocktail History

A French Connection is a cocktail made with equal parts Cognac and Amaretto liqueur. The cocktail is named for the Gene Hackman film of the same name. The two-ingredient French Connection combines cognac and amaretto and is a sibling to the classic Godfather, which calls for whiskey.


  • 1 1/2 oz Cognac
  • 1 oz Amaretto

Cocktail Preparation

The best thing about drinking cognac cocktails is the level of complexity – simply add all the ingredients into a rocks glass over ice and stir briefly. Enjoy!
