Rémy Martin's Latest Cocktails Will Have You Looking Like a Master Mixologist

Delicious flavors, lo-fi ingredients, and lots of fun.

If there's one thing chefs enjoy, it's eating and drinking. At the CIA Chef Summit presented by Rémy Martin, everyone from Fredrik Berselius of Aska to Thomas Keller of The French Laundry and Per Se imbibed and enjoyed craft cocktails with distinctive flavors. Mimicking the innovation and creativity seen on the plates throughout the Summit, the drinks tantalized tastebuds while olfactory senses were on overdrive due to the array of aromas from Rémy Martin's Tercet and XO.

As a cognac fine champagne, the Tercet marries fresh notes with the fruity—think pineapple, preserved ginger, and cinnamon to name a few. Similarly, XO has the fruitiness in spades (tasting notes include plum, candied orange, mature fig) with hints of earthiness derived from fresh hazelnuts, roasted cocoa beans, and saffron. With these two spirits, Rémy Martin has raised the bar—literally—on cocktail hour. Below, we share the cocktail recipes that will have your friends in awe at your skills, but also clamoring for another round. Cheers!
