In continuation of our Cognac series, I sit down with two very different Cognac houses. One house is rooted in tradition in the heart of the Grand Champagne region, and the other is a young brand that is shaking up the category with some modern techniques. My guests are Patrice Piveteau, deputy general manager and cellar master at Cognac Frapin, and winemaker, distiller and Bourgoin Cognac family member, Frédéric Bourgoin.

This week's featured cocktail is the French 75:

French 75
1 oz Cognac 
1/4 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
4-5 oz Champagne
lemon twist

Pour cognac, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice and shake until well chilled. Strain into a very cold Champagne glass, top with bubbly, and garnish with a lemon twist.
