Compiled by Matt Goldstein

If you were “man enough” to try our chocolate Cognac recipe with Hennessy and Godiva Chocolate liqueur, we’re sure you’d be willing to try our vanilla Cognac and other warm wintery drinks for this ridiculously cold weather.  As the temperature dropped to 7 degrees Fahrenheit today in Philadelphia, we at Whiskey Goldmine are looking for a good reason to warm up, and a Guinness Espresso sounds pretty damn perfect!
