French Presbyterian

The Presbyterian Cocktail is a simple long cocktail which mixes Scotch Whisky with ginger ale and soda water. When I was discussing CAMUS VS Elegance Cognac with Richard Bush the Area Manager (US Travel Retail, Canada and the Caribbean) for Camus Wines & Spirits, I asked him if he was familiar with that particular cocktail as I felt during our tasting session that his CAMUS VS would be particularly well suited for this style of bar drink. Richard confessed he was unfamiliar with the Presbyterian cocktail, however when I described for him what it was, he became quite excited. Apparently mixing ginger-ale and soda water with Cognac is very common in France, and he felt that I was definately on the right cocktail path for this particular spirit.

Of course a proper Presbyterian Cocktail must be made with whisky. When made with Cognac, I believe it would be more appropriate to call this construction a French Presbyterian.

French PresbyterianHere is the recipe:

French Presbyterian Cocktail

2 oz Cognac
2 1/2 oz Ginger Ale
2 1/2 oz Club Soda
slice of lemon (optional)

Add the ice-cubes to a rocks or Collins glass
Pour the Cognac over the ice
Add Ginger Ale and Club Soda and stir
Garnish with a slice of lemon if desired

Enjoy Responsibly!
