The Halo, taken from the French 'a l’eau' (with water): the simplest, most elegant way to enjoy Martell in a cocktail.
Let ice settle in the glass for a few minutes prior to making the cocktail. This will chill the glass and make your Halo even more refreshing.
Drinking cognac with water became popular in London around the 1790s. By the 1840s, Americans had started to enjoy cognac with soda-water while in France, and the trend of mixing cognac with seltzer water (‘Fine à l’eau’) was immensely popular in Parisian cafés from the 1920s to 1960s. Notably, Ernest Hemingway mentions ‘Fine à l’eau’ in his classic 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. Today, the Halo is the perfect simple, elegant and refreshing drink.
