What Are Some Good Ways to Drink Remy Martin?

By Dana Poblete

Cognac is a brandy that must be grown, distilled, and aged in Cognac, France, or one of its six surrounding viticultural (wine-growing) areas. The region's unique chalky soil, climate, and centuries-old distillation practices make cognac unique among brandies. Remy Martin is a cognac distilled from white Champagne grapes in France. Enjoy it as an aperitif, with food, or mixed into cocktails.

On Its Own

Remy Martin can be served neat (at room temperature), on the rocks, or "subzero" (frozen).

With Food

Pair iced Remy Martin with smoked salmon or sushi. Remy neat plays well with fruit, such as peaches, apricots, or dried apples. A snifter of Remy is sublime with desserts made with chocolate or cinnamon.

Make a Sidecar

Fill a shaker halfway with ice. Add Remy Martin, Cointreau, and lemon juice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a cocktail glass.

Make a Stanley Steamer

Add Remy Martin, coffee liqueur, and Irish cream to a warm beer stein. Fill the stein almost to the top with coffee. Add a splash of orange liqueur and whipped cream.
