One of the most popular cognacs that has now been demolished by its lack of traditionally being slowly sipped from a warmed snifter glass, but instead it is now mixed with anything from coke to apple juice.  This is one of the most widely popular alcoholic beverages that is at every black party/get together.  While it is a very strong spirit, it is popular with the women just as much.  It isn’t cheap, so in most cases it is a BYOB expression when showing up at a gathering.
