JCB XO Cognac Sparkling Julep

Inspired by our JCB LIVE and Wine Styles virtual tastings, our very own Donnell Shuster put her passionate spin on classic cocktails that pair well with the delightful food prepared by JCB Chef Rafael Molina.


  • 6 Mint leaves, plus a sprig for serving
  • 1/5 oz Simple syrup
  • 4 oz Haute Couture Blanc
  • 1/2 oz JCB Cognac
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Lemon twist for serving


Muddle mint leaves and simple syrup in a julep cup or rocks glass. Add champagne, cognac, and bitters. Fill glass partway with crushed ice, and stir gently to combine. Mound more crushed ice on top, and garnish with a mint sprig and a lemon twist.
