  • 2 Parts Martell Blue Swift
  • .25 Parts Sugar Cane Syrup
  • 2 Dashes Jefferson Bitters

To create our Cocktail of the Week, in a mixing glass add sugar cane syrup, dashes of bitters and then Martell Blue Swift. Add ice and then stir. Strain contents into a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange peel.

In 1783, Martell was the first brand to ship its cognac barrels from France to the United States. More than two centuries later, Martell is introducing its newest product inspired by the role of the U.S. in the cognac’s long history.old-fashioned-with-blue-swift-bottle Martell Blue Swift, an Eau de Vie de Vin made of 100% Cognac VSOP, is matured in French Oak casks then finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks for a unique and rounded flavor. Aromas include banana and caramelized pears, with classic taste notes of candied fruit and plum. A finish of vanilla and toasted oak reveals the bourbon casks. The new release can also be taken neat or over ice.

Martell Blue Swift will be exclusively available in select U.S. markets this October with suggested retail of $49.99. For more information, visit
