One of the most famous cocktails that make for the perfect “nightcap” is one known as the B&B cocktail which is simple as mixing two spirits together, Brandy and Bénédictine. Well, the Beautiful Cocktail is driven off the same concept of enhancing your brandy or cognac with a top-shelf liqueur such as Grand Marnier. It’s also the sister drink to the French Connection and also known as the French Connection 2.
- 1 oz Cognac
- 1 oz Orange Liqueur (Grand Marnier preferred)
Layer the two ingredients in a short brandy snifter or cordial glass, and enjoy.
