    Simple recipes for each season

    A winter coat in the height of summer, or shorts in the depths of winter? What works perfectly in one season, could make an audacious choice in another.

    As with sartorial elegance, so too with cocktails. Finding the perfect cocktail for each season, one to warm oneself in the depths of winter or offer thirst-quenching refreshment at the height of summer, is sometimes best left to the experts.

    When it comes to creating cocktails, Maison Martell’s Master Mixologist Remy Savage is the definition of a seasoned professional.

    We ask this industry icon, voted Europe’s best mixologist, for his favourite cognac cocktail recipes to pair with each season.

    Sorbonne cocktail

    Fall

    ​Fall – or autumn, depending on where one calls home – is not all falling leaves and jack-o-lanterns. It’s a season of earthy produce, cosy catch-ups and enjoying those last bright rays of sun.

    Remy Savage suggests a cocktail as intriguing and elegant as its name evokes. The Sorbonne made with Martell VSOP, is a cognac cognac that combines red aromatic bitters, Pineau de Charentes, and Amer Picon, garnished with lemon zest and served in a frozen glass.

    Named for the famous French university, mastering the Sorbonne with cognac will take your cocktail repertoire to a higher level.

    Noblige & Coffee cocktail

    Winter

    Winter might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but what about coffee? Remy Savage recommends Noblige and Coffee to get one through the coldest months. Made with a cold brew of freshly ground coffee, this easy cocktail is simple to prepare at home yet surprisingly sophisticated on the palate.

    Fine à l'eau cocktail

    Spring

    Time to clean away those tried and tested cocktail recipes in favour of some new flavours and tastes? Spring is the season of rebirth and rejuvenation, all freshness and green with a verve in the air.

    The same applies to the Fine à l’Eau. Made with Martell VS, verjus, and topped with sparkling water, this fine cocktail will tantalise the taste buds and put a spring in the step.

    Cordon Bleu Cherry cocktail

    Summer

    The season of holidays and seaside escapes, of sun and sand and warm evenings that last well into the night.

    The Cordon Bleu Cherry cocktail adds an exotic twist to any summery occasion. The secret lies in the cherry eau de vie, for a burst of fruit flavors, and refreshing chamomile syrup. Choose the option to add coconut water for an added tropical touch.

    Then lie back and relax, it’s summer after all.
