And after the Godfather came the turn of the French Connection, one of the three cocktails based on amaretto liqueur, and in this case, cognac.
What about the aromatic complexity is splendid. From the glass come ethereal and precious aromas, spicy and sweet that mix wonderfully, but it is above all on the palate that it shows personality with a full, enveloping, and warm taste for a healthy relaxation after dinner.
The French Connection is one of those drinks to sip, perhaps to try several consecutive evenings to find the right cognac and experiment with this fabulous French distillate.
French is the sweetest of the three cocktails in the amaretto triad, so do your math, but above all, keep it in mind if you want to combine a great cocktail with desserts, cakes and ice cream.
Here is the original French Connection recipe for you, with ingredients and doses, but if you want some advice, I will put a little less amaretto (2 cl instead of 3.5) which in these doses, 50-50, is too gooey, with a sweetness bordering on cloying.
French Connection ingredients and doses
- 3.5 cl of cognac
- 3.5 cl of amaretto liqueur
How to make the French Connection cocktail
Put the cognac and amaretto in an old-fashioned glass, mix and serve.
The recipe also includes some ice cubes, but honestly, I would try without it first, especially if you add less amaretto liqueur.
