Renaissance Cocktail

Renaissance Cocktail

A Renaissance cocktail consists of gin, vermouth, and cognac and is simple to make and easy to serve cocktail at parties.

Did you know that the “Renaissance Cocktail” was invented in 1876 by Charles Hires at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City?

It’s Easy To Mix

The cocktail consists of gin, vermouth, and cognac and is sweetened with a lemon twist.

Easy To Serve

If you’re looking for an easy way to serve cocktails at parties, consider serving them in martini glasses. They’re small enough to fit easily into any party setting, and they make it easier to pour drinks without spilling.

Use Plenty Of Ice

You’ll find that people who enjoy drinking gin cocktails often prefer to use ice cubes rather than crushed ice. This is because crushed ice tends to melt faster, making it harder to measure out the right amount of liquid.


  • 10ml LemonTop gin
  • 30ml Cognac
  • 15ml Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 Dashes of peach bitters (or bitters)
  • Lemon Twist for garnish
  • Ice


Fill the shaker with ice, add all ingredients, stir well, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish.
