The Hennessy & Champagne cocktail

The Hennessy & Champagne cocktail

“Bitter and dry, this one is made for special occasions!” The Hennessy & Champagne cocktail will have you dreaming about the dazzling Prohibition-era and its mesmerising settings and speeded-up slapsticks. The subtle roundness and sweet effervescence of the champagne is the drink's true heart.
 
30 ml Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège or Hennessy V.S
3 Dashes of Angostura bitters
1 Sugar cube
1 Cherry
Top with champagne
 
Soak the sugar cube in Angostura. Place in flute and add Hennessy cognac. Top your winter cocktail with champagne and garnish with a cherry.

The Old Fashioned cocktail

The Old Fashioned cocktail

“Perfectly blended, with a lingering taste of sweet spice!”
Every note is sincere. Once you get past this cognac cocktail's opening eruptions of bitters, your palate will feel like it’s hosting hundreds of party guests hollering and doing the Charleston.
 
50 ml Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège
15 ml Simple syrup
2 Dashes of Angostura bitters
1 Orange zest
 
Drop bitters into an Old-Fashioned glass filled with ice cubes. Add a splash of water and the syrup. Pour in the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège cognac slowly. Garnish your drink with a twist of orange.

The Little Peaty cocktail

The Little Peaty cocktail

With a distinguished taste, and a rather theatrical appearance, the Little Peaty cocktail will draw you in with its inexhaustible variety of smoothness, sweetness and smokiness. 
 
30 ml Hennessy V.S
5 ml Ardbeg
15 ml Orange liqueur
1 Cherry
 
Add all ingredients and ice to a shaker tin. Shake until chilled. Strain into a shot glass. Drop a cherry to the bottom of your winter cocktail.

The Per Sempre cocktail

The Per Sempre cocktail

“A timeless cocktail, made richer and more complex”
Per Sempre is like a guest at a wild gathering who finds the frenzy tiresome and would rather be at home reading, but can't let on because he's supposed to be the life of the party – simply put, it’s dry, bitter and dangerously appealing. 
 
45 ml Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège
15 ml Campari™
15 ml Amaro Nonino™
4 Dashes of orange bitters (or Angostura bitters)
1 Orange twist
