I went to Cognac last month and I came back with VERY heavy luggage full of beautiful bottles, an entirely new appreciation for brandy, and an epic series of episodes! This week we kick off our Cognac series. 

First up is David Boileau, a Cognac educator and ambassador since 2006 for the BNIC - the professional organization behind Cognac. I also spoke with Jacques Blanc who is the house historian and tour guide of Maison Ferrand of Pierre Ferrand Cognac.  

This week's featured cocktail is the signature drink of Cognac:

The Summit
1.5 ounces Cognac VSOP
2 ounces lemon-lime soda
4 thin slices fresh ginger
1 lime peel
1 long piece cucumber

Put lime peel and ginger into glass, pour in 3/4 oz Cognac, lightly muddle. Fill half the glass with ice, and stir. Pour in the remaining Cognac. Top off with lemon-lime soda and garnish with cucumber, stir well and enjoy
