Mandarines and tangerines were introduced to Europe in the early 1800s, and were considered exotic fruits with medicinal qualities. It became fashionable to infuse the fruits in cognac and to drink the results. Napoleon was himself partial to such drinks and frequently invited one of its greatest exponents, Antoine-Francois du Fourcroy, to indulge in the beverage. It is said to be Fourcroy’s formula with which Napoleon wooed his favourite actress, Mlle Mars.
