5 Great Party Cocktails Anyone Can Shake-Up with MARTELL NCF

Light-Up the Room this Festive Season with Martell NCF

#NCF – There’s a cool new “hashtag” worthy making taglines around the party scene. A few weeks back, the 300-year old cognac maison, Martell unveiled its new NCF variant in Singapore. Breaking with tradition,this Non-Chill-Filtered cognac version is filtered at room temperatures instead of at sub-zero temperatures. The result? Smooth, refreshing aromas that inspired us to try out with these easy to prep party concoctions.

Add ice into the glass. Then with the back of a spoon placed over the soft drink, slowly begin pouring the cognac over the the spoon.

*TIP – Bring out that punch bowl for larger groups, and serve it into individual glasses for guests as they arrive. This is great as the party centerpiece too.

#3 The Perfect Serve

Whilst this number isn’t a drink that requires any bottle-juggling, bar-tendering flare, it does add a nice zesty twist to the body of the cognac.

  • 35ml Martell NCF
  • 10ml Chilled Mineral Water
  • Orange Zest

*TIP – We twisted our orange peel over the cognac, releasing some of that zesty orange oil goodness into the glass.
