Ok, I admit it. I like a number of different alcohol beverages. But my very favorite is cognac. The perfect post meal sip, cradled by my hand in a snifter, I get a special warm feeling as I close my eyes, the fire in the hearth crackling, resting from reading a book of French poetry, my dog snoring at my feet. When I open my eyes I remember that I have no fireplace, cannot read French and have no desire to take a canine outside to do his business several times each day. But I still have a nice warm feeling. Yep, cognac can do that.
