Cognac works well in this fruit cup, rounding the other ingredients to present as a more harmonious blend when compared to the same recipe made with gin. However, it’s more of a winter’s cup, without the freshening edge expected of a summer’s fruit cup.


Created in June 2017 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
