French Riviera Cocktail Recipe

The French Riviera was created in 2015 by Tom Byrne at Charlotte's W4 in London. The sweet combination of honey, lemon and apricot work seamlessly with the cognac and gold rum. Whilst a little on the sweet side, it makes for a delicious citrusy, fruity drink to sip on.
