July 1, 2011 (Day 94) — Bonaparte

Napoleon Bonaparte.

Famous short dude.

Famous for having his penis stolen.

He may have done some other stuff too.

He also liked his cognac.

Now, it’s actually Courvoisier who claims to be the cognac of Napoleon. From their website:

The origin of our history goes back to the beginning of the 19th century with Emmanuel Courvoisier and his associate, Louis Gallois, running a wine and spirit merchant company, in the Parisian suburb of Bercy. In 1811 Napoleon visited their warehouses in Bercy and he was hosted by Louis Gallois, the Mayor, and Emmanuel Courvoisier. Legend has it that Napoleon I later took several barrels of cognac with him to St Helena, a treat much appreciated by the English officers on the ship who named it ‘The Cognac of Napoleon’

Now, there’s no actual PROOF that this was the case. So we’re going with our Hennessy.


  • 1 oz Hennessy VS Cognac
  • .75 oz Grand Monarch (Brandy-based orange liqueur)

Combine in a rocks glass over ice. Serve.

Try not to think about THAT now.
