Gascony special

The d’Artagnan is aptly amed after the fourth Musketeer, a native of Gascony, which is also the birthplace of Armagnac. It’s a great Champagne cocktail and lesser-known compared to many other varieties. Unlike the recipes above, it has to be made with Armagnac to be considered a proper d’Artagnan!

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 15 ml (½ Oz) Armagnac

  • 15 ml (½ Oz) Grand Marnier

  • 60 ml (2 Oz) Orange Juice

  • 7 ml (¼ Oz) Simple Syrup

  • Brut Champagne


Shake the Armagnac, Grand Marnier, orange juice, and syrup with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Top up with Brut Champagne to taste. Given the use of simple syrup, avoid using sweet Champagne or sparkling wine like Prosecco.


To celebrate New Orleans’ 300th anniversary, Revolution in the Royal Sonesta hotel incorporated an Armagnac into its Sazerac. Indeed, cognac may have been the brandy of choice when the cocktail was invented. However, Armagnac quickly took its place during the phylloxera epidemic.

concept withe the following ingredients.

  • 50 ml (1¾ Oz) Armagnac

  • 15 ml (½ Oz) Absinthe

  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

  • 1 Lemon Peel


Drop the absinthe into an empty tumbler glass and swirl it until it leaves a coating inside before filling it with ice and setting it aside. While it cools, add the Armagnac and bitters to a second tumbler and stir the ingredients with ice.

Toss out the contents of the first tumbler and strain the ingredients from the second one into it. You can add a twisted lemon peel for garnish

The RITZ SIDECAR Vintage Cocktail

The Ritz Sidecar is a cocktail known as one of the most expensive[1] drinks in the world and is a variant of the more common Sidecar. The drink was invented by Colin Peter Field[2] and is served at the Bar Hemingway at the Hôtel Ritz Paris.

Admittedly, the Sidecar was introduced in the 1920s at the Paris Ritz. Therefore, it was unlikely that Armagnac was ever used instead of cognac. Nevertheless, it pairs nicely with the lemon juice and triple sec. 

It consists of just the following ingredients:

  • 40 ml (1¼ Oz) Armagnac

  • 30 ml (1 Oz) Triple Sec / Cointreau

  • 15 ml (½ Oz) Lemon Juice

  • 1 Lemon Peel


Just shake the ingredients with ice, strain them into a well-chilled coupe glass, and add a lemon twist for garnish.
