This goes WAY back! At the risk of dating myself something awful, I'll say that I remember when this song was popular. Though in my defense, it is one of the first songs I ever remember playing an abusive number of times.
The Footloose soundtrack was one of the first albums I ever owned and I played it until my Walkman finally ate the tape. (Millennials may have to decode that last sentence with some Google searching.)
True to form, this drink is a new twist on an old classic. And be prepared for a quick trip to the liquor store, because only Baby Boomers and earlier generations would have Cognac laying around the house. Even then, probably only blue bloods and Francophiles.
Talk about impressing your friends though! Whipping out a bottle of Cognac and knowing what to do with it?! Goddamn!
You'll be the talk of the evening. All because of this cocktail with an indecorous moniker. And Shalamar. We mustn't forget the debt we owe to Shalamar.
