Alambra Royale

Sometimes it is hard to enjoy a cocktail when your drink is as frigid as the weather outside. Why not warm things up with a hot drink? The Alambra Royale starts with hot chocolate, then adds soft oak and light fruit flavours to create a warming winter cocktail.


1 1/2 oz Courvoisier VS Cognac

5 oz Hot Chocolate

Orange twist for garnish

Dollop of whip cream (optional)


Prepare some hot chocolate and pour it into a heat-resistant glass or mug about 3/4 of the way full. Next, we need to warm up the Courvoisier VS Cognac. Pour the cognac into a metal ladle, set the liquid on fire with a match or lighter, then carefully pour into the hot chocolate.

Be very careful any time you are using fire. If you are concerned about the use of fire, skip heating up the cognac and pour it directly into the hot chocolate.

Twist an orange peel over the entire drink and rest on the glass.

Add whipped cream if desired.
