- Lemonade. Citrus makes caramel-filled liqueurs with fruity notes and a light sip for the summer months.
- Sweet tea.

Traditionally it is drunk neat, from a pinch of hand-molded brandy to warm up. If that doesn’t suit you, you can drink it in feminine ■■■■■■■■■ like Brandy Alexander.
Pour the cognac with 2 or 3 ice cubes into a Collins glass and top with the soda. That’s all. Use a much improved French liqueur, one of the cheaper cognacs or almost any Spanish liqueur, but save the expensive stuff for an afternoon snack.
