The Gentleman cocktail is a twist on the French Connection. The French Connection named after William Friedkin's neo-noir film is a two-part drink made with Cognac and Amaretto. Our twist tends to accentuate a hint of orange that is not captured in the original blend producing a lighter flavor while maintaining it's potency. This delightful blend can be enjoyed shaken or on the rocks. It's smooth, but you know it's going to creep up on you, it's the gentleman.
