The Gazette is a French companion to the Journalist, with brandy or cognac (please) and lemon juice. It's a little sweeter with a half ounce of sweet vermouth and a half tsp. of sugar. D’USSÉ VSOP cognac (a new product in the US) is well balanced and suited to cocktailing as it is taken neat. It's dry and oaky with that round fruit flavor you expect from good cognac. 
  • 2 oz. cognac (D’USSÉ VSOP used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
