Cognac and orange curaçao are natural partners, here smoothed with egg white and sharpened with a dash of orange bitters. According to tastes, you may want to reduce or omit the sugar syrup, particularly if you are using a particularly sweet orange curaçao liqueur.
With dash of anisette liqueur or absinthe this becomes the Dream cocktail.
