      Ingredients for Cognac Cream Sauce with Beef

      For the beef

      • 1 trimmed whole beef tenderloin (3-1/2 to 4 lb.)
      • Kosher salt
      • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
      • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
      • 1 medium clove garlic, mashed to a paste
      • 1 tsp. honey
      • 1 tsp. soy sauce
      • 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme
      • Freshly ground black pepper
      • 2 Tbs. olive oil

      For the cognac cream sauce

      • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
      • 1/4 cup minced shallot
      • 1/2 cup Rivente Cognac
      • 3 cups unsalted or lower-salt chicken stock or broth
      • 4 small sprigs fresh thyme
      • 2 cups heavy cream
      • 2 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
      • 1/4 oz. finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (1/4 cup using a rasp grater)
      • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
      • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice; more as needed
      • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


      Sear-roast the beef

      • Fold the thinner end of the tenderloin under to create an evenly thick roast; secure with twine. Rub the beef all over with 1 Tbs. salt. Wrap it in butcher paper or plastic wrap, put it on a platter or rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
      • Remove the beef from the refrigerator and let sit for about an hour before roasting. Meanwhile, position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 475°F.
      • In a small bowl, combine the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, honey, soy sauce, thyme, and a few grinds of pepper; set aside.
      • Heat a flame-proof roasting pan over medium-high heat, using 2 burners if necessary. Add the oil, swirling the pan to coat, and then add the beef. Cook, turning with tongs, until well browned on all sides, about 12 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board; wipe out the pan.
      • Brush the glaze over all of the beef, return it to the roasting pan, and roast to an internal temperature of 120°F for rare, 16 to 20 minutes, or 125°F for medium rare, 22 to 26 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes.

      Make the cognac cream sauce

      • Melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3 minutes.
      • Add the Rivente Cognac, turn the heat up to high, and boil until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the stock and thyme and boil until the mixture has reduced to just over 1 cup, 15 to 20 minutes. Discard the thyme sprigs.
      • Stir in the cream and black pepper and lower the heat to maintain a gentle boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is reduced to 2 cups and is a bit thicker than heavy cream, about 20 minutes.
      • Remove from the heat and whisk in the Parmigiano, mustard, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Once the cheese has melted, season to taste with more salt, pepper, or lemon juice.
      • Slice the tenderloin 1/2 inch thick and pour any juice that has accumulated over the sliced beef. Serve the beef with the sauce.

      Make Ahead Tips

      The sauce may be made 1 day ahead, but be sure to let it cool before covering and refrigerating. Reheat gently.

      The tenderloin can be tied and salted up to 2 days ahead; keep it wrapped in butcher paper or plastic in the refrigerator.

          Top 5 Cognac Mixers

          No more wondering what to mix with your cognac.

          Rivente should be enjoyed YOUR way but here is a guide with the top 5 cognac mixers for you to start with. The legend of Cognac is one that’s shrouded in history. And for many, in mystery. The drink is so iconic that many mistake it as one that need to be consumed in a certain way. But in all honesty, nothing could be further from the truth. Because it’s one of the most versatile spirits you can think of. So if you ever wonder what to mix with Cognac, then let us introduce you to the wonderful world of Cognac mixed drinks; a place where the only limit is your imagination.

          Guide To Top 5 Cognac Mixers For Any Occasion

          1. Cognac and Ginger Ale
          We hear you ask not just what are the top 5 cognac mixers, but what soda to drink with Cognac? Well the spicy taste of ginger marries delightfully with certain Cognacs. In fact, there are many Cognac cocktails that use the strength of the spice to create a delicious long drink. If you fancy a long, refreshing thirst quencher, then pairing a quality VS or VSOP with ginger ale and ice is a great combination. Use a high ball glass, a shot of your favorite Cognac, and a generous portion of ginger ale. We particularly like it with Fever Tree Ginger Ale, or, for an exotic twist, use the Fever Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale, which combines sweet clementine and cinnamon. Together with the Cognac, the flavour explosion is exotic and sensual, one that will really hit the spot for those who value a high end drinking experience.

          2. Coca Cola
          Now, they’ll still be a few purists out there who wouldn’t dream of such a mix. But when it comes down to Cognac mixers, the time-enduring taste of Coke combined with a powerful eau-de-vie creates a flavour infusion that millions enjoy. For us, we like a splash of the fizzy stuff, ice, and a slice of lemon. The combination is really good to drink with Cognac. A quality VS, VSOP, or Napoleon Cognac is a great choice, and one that leans towards the spicier range of the spectrum works best.

          3. Iced Tea
          Fans of the most famous Cognac in the world will be keen to know what to drink with Hennessy Cognac. Now, it might not sound the most obvious choice, but combining it with iced tea is an incredible twist on a drink that’s a favorite with millions around the world. Mix 1.5 oz of VS or VSOP Rivente Cognac , 2 oz of unsweetened cold tea, 1 oz of simple syrup, and 0.5 oz of fresh lemon juice. Shake it up with some ice in a cocktail shaker, garnish with a twist of orange, and voila—your drink is ready. Enjoy.

          4. Tonic
          Never underestimate the humble tonic as a great way to mix and enjoy Cognac. It pairs perfectly and brings out the tones of fruit that Cognac is noted for. Fever Tree produces a range of different tonics that you can experiment with. From Premium Indian to Light Mediterranean, Refreshingly Aromatic to Elderflower, each adds a unique twist and is a seriously good mixer to drink with Cognac.
          Check out our tonic tasting to get a bit more of an idea of the difference between Schweppes and Tomr’s, as seen below in the photo. But there’s no need to stick to a particular brand, craft tonic is now a real thing. So relish the differences, and try them all.

          5. With water or soda
          Whisky drinkers will be very familiar with adding a drop of water to their liquor. But it’s not so widely done with Cognac, which is a real shame because it’s a great mixer. Don’t overdo it, of course. But a few drops will stir up the flavors and aromas, subtly revealing another side to the Cognac you’re tasting.

              Health Benefits of Cognac

              Is Cognac Good For Your Health?

              Some scientific research says yes.  There are multiple reasons that there are health benefits of cognac.

              Cognac is world renown as a world class spirit whose creation involves a careful, arduous and painstaking process from soil to glass. Cognac is well-known for its lifting the spirits of its aficionados. Cognac is a pleasure sipped straight or on ice and can complement or enhance a fine meal or cigar. There may also be health benefits to cognac. According to one spry 102 year old marathon runner, Cognac can also help keep you young.

              Meet Ernest Dunn

              In 1972, then 57 year old Ernest Dunn was “prescribed” a little cognac for his poor circulation. He describes how he would take a shot of Cognac, straight every day. He apparently follows this regime to this day.

              Mr. Dunn secrets to longevity do not rest on Cognac alone. Among his pearls of wisdom he describes:

              Don’t give up on yourself.
              Don’t abuse yourself, love yourself and take care of yourself.
              Think for yourself.
              Stand on your own feet.
              Always be involved in exercise.
              Don’t think old.
              Keep moving.
              If your feet hurt, massage them, be like a rubberband.

              Health Benefits of Cognac

              health benefits of cognac

              According to an article in Livestrong, there is scientific evidence that Cognac may be good for you in moderation.

              These benefits include:

              -increase antioxidant levels that can prevent risk of clogged arteries, heart disease, cancer and vision loss and may even help the body absorb other antioxidants.

              -may reduce risk for blood clots.

              -may limit risk for type 2 diabetes and gallstones.

              Any of these potential health benefits, however, are negated if Cognac is consumed immoderately – i.e. one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for men. Any thing more than that increases health risk.

              Cognac Orange BBQ Wings


              Rivente Cognac Orange BBQ Wings?! YES! Orange and cognac go together like up and down.  Like bacon and eggs. It’s really a fabulously delicious pairing, and if you haven’t tried it even in drink form, you’re about to receive a blessing. Chef Resha of Carnal Dish basically concocted a BBQ sauce version of the nifty pairing, that seriously goes well on ANYTHING! Shrimp, chicken, fish, pork, veggies — anything you’d put BBQ sauce on. Trust us on this one, guys. It’s just damn good.

              She put this sauce on some wings — and she baked those wings using the baking powder method, but it seriously doesn’t matter how you cook your chicken. You can fry these wings, do whatever you want! This is about the sauce.


              Words from Chef Resha:

              Now, on to the recipe…I chucked some onions in this so they could get all jammy and caramelized, they cling beautifully to your food. The orange marmalade is IMPORTANT here!  It provides the most amount of orange flavor and the necessary pectin to thicken this lovely sauce. The base of this sauce uses Heinz Chili Sauce (you can find this literally anywhere ketchup is sold), but if for some strange reason you can’t find Chili Sauce, just use ketchup.

              Aside from the chili sauce/ketchup, orange marmalade, and necessary spices — this recipe is pretty lenient. You can leave this out, or that out, and it’ll still turn out to be delicious — given that you’re tasting it as it cooks down. Don’t be a jackalope and do this recipe to the letter without tasting it as you go, that’s just foolish. That very last splash of Cognac at the end is also very crucial. You cook off most of the alcohol, and you’re left with delicious cognac flavor — but punching that up a bit with fresh liquor is amazing.

              DESCRIPTION Rivente Cognac Orange BBQ Wings

              This recipe is more about the sauce. You can fry your wings, grill them, however you’d like to prepare them. Just toss them in that delicious Rivente Cognac Orange BBQ Wings Sauce, and get your life.

              1. Create a smartphone app

              If you have some app development skills and you’re proficient at Swift or Android-based development platforms, you could try your hand at creating a smartphone app. Obviously, this isn’t a quick or easy way to make money, but could pay off big with the right idea.

              2. Become a virtual assistant.

              Virtual assistants are in high demand, but it only makes sense from an income standpoint if you have lots of free time and you’re very organized. It also doesn’t hurt to live in an area with a lower cost of living.

              3. Manage social media for small businesses.

              Number 20 of 21 side hustles to start in 2021 is a hot commodity.  Many small businesses need a social media manager and simply don’t have the time nor the expertise to be constantly posting on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter. Take it upon yourself to contact local businesses and offer up your services for a contracted monthly fee. This is an easy way to make money no matter where you live.

              4. Do micro-jobs on Mechanical Turk.

              Amazon’s Mechanical Turk platform is one way you can earn money, though it won’t make you rich by any measure. However, if you’re looking to take on micro-jobs that can be done in a few minutes each, by stringing them together, you could earn some cash that might help you out if you’re in a bind.

              5. Do email marketing.

              Email marketing is one of the most profitable forms of marketing that exists online. However, attracting subscribers and making a personal connection with them takes a good deal of work. Use platforms like LeadPages, Aweber, Constant Contact, MailChimp and ConvertKit to get things off the ground.

              6. Design logos on 99Designs.

              If you’re graphically inclined and you’re get a programs like Photoshop and Illustrator, you could potentially compete for design work on 99Designs. However, you won’t get paid unless your design is chosen as the winning design, meaning you need to be a very good designer to make income that’s worthwhile here.

              7. Create YouTube tutorials.

              Although this isn’t the quickest way you can make money with a side income, creating YouTube tutorials can help you earn a respectable amount of income as long as what you deliver is engaging and keeps people interested for long enough. You could also use free tutorials to upsell viewers on products and services you might be offering.

              8. Create an online course.

              Create an online course with a platform like Udemy or Teachable and leverage some of your skills to create a healthy income. Depending upon how much time you invest in your course, you could make a substantial side revenue stream by creating courses that deliver tremendous amounts of value.  This is a very valuable one of the 21 side hustles to start in 2021.

              9. Tutor over Skype.

              You can tutor people over Skype, no matter where you might live. This is great, especially if you’re a digital nomad and you’re looking to earn more money than the local job market can potentially provide. Tutor people from the U.S. or U.K. if you’re traveling through Asia or another low-cost-of-living country around the world.


              Home based: 21 side hustles to start in 2021

              10. Become an affiliate marketer.

              Affiliate marketing is an extremely alluring industry. However, many affiliate marketers don’t make much money. If you have the skills it takes to succeed in this arena, you could quite literally make a small fortune. But be careful not to get drawn into pie-in-the-sky hopes or dreams of making money without putting in much effort.

              11. Become a house sitter.

              Become a professional house sitter and watch homes for people that go on vacation or have a second home and don’t spend much time there. and both offer house-sitting jobs.

              12. Become a freelance article writer.

              Write articles for other people. If you have a passion for writing, you could help out other bloggers or even become a ghost writer for a well-known author. Use sites like Freelancer, Upwork and others to advertise your services.

              13. Clean houses.

              Housekeeping is always an option. There are loads of private families and home owners that are renting out their homes on a short-term basis that need housekeeping or house cleaning services. You can list your services on sites and many others to promote yourself.

              14. Become a personal chef.

              Are you a good cook? You could become a personal chef and prepare meals for other people. You could easily market your services on social media or even go all out and build yourself a website. There are also plenty of websites you can use to market your services.

              15. Rent your spare room on Airbnb.

              AirBnB offers a great resource for people that are willing to rent out a spare room or even their entire home. If you’re in a bind for some fast cash, AirBnB offers you an avenue for creating an income. You’ll get paid 24 hours after a guest checks in, which is to avoid any problems or potential scams that might arrive. Some people earn their primary income just by renting out rooms or homes on AirBnB.

              16. Sell items on Ebay or Craigslist.

              One of the surest ways you can make cash if you’re in a bind is to sell items on Ebay or Craigslist. Any used items like furniture, household appliances, collectibles or anything else that you’re just not using or is collecting dust, can be sold online to make some money. If you’re serious about this, you can even do it professionally for others and collect a small commission for each sale. Take quality photos and write a good description and you’ll be in great shape.

              17. Recycle used smartphones on Gazelle.

              I’ve sold a few used smartphones on Gazelle and it’s a no-hassle way of making some cash if you have an old iPhone or Samsung smartphone or another device sitting around. While you won’t get top-dollar for it, you will be able to get a little bit of cash that might just help you out depending on your financial situation.

              Service based side hustles

              18. Start a food truck side hustle.

              Purchasing a food truck requires a substantial investment, but the food truck business is growing significantly. Location and cuisine choice is important. Be sure to do ample research before getting started.

              19. Wash and detail cars.

              Wash and detail cars in your area. Hand out fliers in your neighborhood or post on social media offering your services. Mobile car washing and detailing has become a relatively lucrative business in more upscale neighborhoods.

              20. Drive for Uber or Lyft.

              One of the most widely available ways for making money is to drive for Uber or Lyft. The sharing economy has quite literally exploded, and both Uber and Lyft are at the forefront. The best part? You can turn on and off your availability through these networks with the simple click of a button, effectively allowing you to make money no matter what time of day or night it is.

              21. Be an extra in movies.

              If you’re looking to make a few extra bucks without a major investment of your, try your hand at being an extra in a movie. There’s a lot of sitting around and waiting, but the pay is good if you’re in a production city like Los Angeles, New York, London or Vancouver.

              Keep Your Cognac Bottle In Mint Condition

              How do Keep Your Cognac Bottle In Mint Condition?

              How do you keep your cognac bottle in mint condition? It’s a question that we’re often asked, and is something that many people have varying opinions on.  Another often raised question is, how long can you keep an unopened bottle of Cognac?

              Here are some considerations to take into account regarding best practice when it comes to storing Cognac.

              The first thing to understand is that Cognac does not continue to age once bottled.  This means that storing a bottle for 10 years (or more) will not make it any older – the contents will remain the same age as they were when they left the barrel.  However, this doesn’t mean that it’s not worth buying an exceptional bottle and storing it for as long as you like.  As we’ve reported, there are a great many people who’re investing in high-end Cognacs such as ourselves.


              So, with regards to an unopened and sealed bottle of Cognac, if stored correctly then the contents will remain safe for a good amount of time.


              store rivente cognac bottle


              What is the best way to store my Cognac bottle?

              You may well have heard that the bottle must be stored in an upright position so the Cognac doesn’t come into contact with the cork, and this may well be correct.

              However, cork is not a substance that has an infinite lifespan, and if it’s not in contact with the Cognac at all then it might become dry.  Bottles should be kept in the shade and in a cool place with no extremes of temperature – a cellar is ideal.

              But, a word of advice – if the environment is too humid, the labels might suffer and come off the bottle – obviously not an ideal scenario.  This is why a cellar often proves a hospitable place to store Cognac, with the temparature in such a place remaining fairly constant, as well as ensuring that the bottle isn’t exposed to any sunlight.

              And when it comes to understanding the best temperature at which to keep your Cognac, then the most important thing to consider is that it’s constant.  In other words, no extremes of temperature.  Indeed, room temperature is quite sufficient.

              If you open a bottle of Cognac, how long will it keep?

              Regarding an open bottle, then there’s no official amount of time a Cognac can be stored before the quality will begin to fade.  However, once the Cognac comes into contact with the air, it will gradually begin to deteriorate and evaporate.  The more air in the bottle, the faster this will happen.

              Realistically, you can think that it’s okay to store an open bottle of Cognac for around six months before this deterioration becomes noticeable.  If you wish, you can decant the contents into a smaller container.  This ensures the air to liquid ratio remains as small as possible, helping to slow the deterioration process.

              But even though an open bottle will deteriorate with age, it’s still fine to drink.  It’s just that you might notice a difference in the taste as the months go by.

              How long can you keep Cognac?

              Now, this is a very commonly asked question; how many years can you keep a bottle?  Well, the simple answer is, for a long time – but not too long.  Old Cognacs are a fragile product.

              So there you have it.  Our advice on how to store a Cognac bottle.  We hope it answers many of the questions of those who’ve taken the time to write in.


              Of course we want for you to use your bottle in your trophy case, or finish it in time to purchase another one, but we always encourage you to do cognac YOUR way.
