  • Skip the chocolate. I make my BAs: 2/1/0.25 cognac/cream/syrup + fresh nutmeg as per a recipe I found in Arnold's Liquid Intelligence. It's dessert but it's fantastic. — ★★★★★
  • Prefer 1:1:1 ratio, use good cognac and Mozart Dark Chocolate — ★★★
  • Bad with cheap brandy. Not sure it's worth making with Cognac either using MB white cacao (but haven't tried yet). — ★
