French Connection

French connection cocktail is an alcoholic beverage made with cognac and amaretto served after dinner or as a nightcap. It is served chilled and is meant to sip slowly as the combination of cognac and amaretto is considered to be very potent. The original French connection cocktail recipe does not call for any kind of garnishing while serving it.

There is no recorded history of the French connection cocktail although the concoction had extremely popular in the 1960s. The drink is again witnessing a revival as a popular nightcap at present. The name, however, indicates that it had been originally invented in France.
