A French Connection is a cocktail made with equal parts Cognac and Amaretto liqueur, a sweet Italian liqueur made from almonds and stone-fruit pits. The French Connection is a two-part drink that first appeared in the early 1970s and was titled for the 1971 Gene Hackman film of the same name. The cocktail’s creator is unknown, so it’s unclear who to thank for this tasty concoction.
Fill a rocks glass with ice.
