Upper Crust

cognac, maraschino, old tom gin
presented by Cocktail Detour


We love orgeat. It’s such a cool sweetener as it is not only sweet, but also nutty, and it has this velvety texture. ⁣

Using it in the Upper Crust cocktail is perfect. It pairs well with Cognac and it creates a very smooth drinking experience. And the Cognac used gives this drink a rather luxurious feeling.⁣

The taste is rich and creamy, with a perfectly balanced level of sweetness. It is a drink to enjoy after a good dinner, as well as to kick off the weekend with!⁣
