If you’re looking for something different to do with your Hennessy, I just may have a few recipes for you just in time for the weekend. And yes I have tried them all. I made sure I kept the ingredients simple. I know some of these mixed drinks can get very complicated. So let’s first take a look at what’s popular.
At some point you have tasted or heard of someone drinking:
Hennessy & Apple Juice
Hennessy & Cranberry
Hennessy & Coke
What’s popular can become boring. Especially if you drink the same thing for a long period of time.
I have had a few people I know state that they are tired of drinking Hennessy the way they know it. So I took the liberty of mixing and testing a few recipes I have come across.
Today, I was joined by a few of my family members to get their yay or nays on the cocktails. Plus, it’s no fun mixing drinks alone. That has got to be the loneliest thing ever. LOL!
So let’s get to it…..
This drink got a YAY from both Courtney and Danielle. Hennessy Berry is a mixture of Hennessy, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice. Danielle said it was the perfect blend of Hennessy and juice.
My thoughts: Let me start by saying I’m not really a Hennessey drinker but I definitely would drink this. The juice tones down but doesn’t take away from its taste. Of course that is a YAY from me.
NAYS across the board. Berry Ben is a mixture of Hennessy, cranberry juice, and gingerale. It wasn’t nasty but we could’ve just drank it straight.
Hennessy Sour Cranberry
This one got a YAY from everybody. It is a mixture of Hennessy, cranberry, and sour mix. It was #2 on the list if they had to choose. Hennessy Berry is #1.
My thoughts: If you like your drinks tart, this is definitely for you. Just make sure you add enough Hennessy.
Can I get a YAY-men? So everybody liked it. It is a mixture of Hennessy, lime juice, lemon juice, and simple syrup. You can purchase simple syrup at Jewel.
My thoughts: This one by far is my favorite. Make sure you add enough syrup. If you don’t, it will taste good. Trust me.
Compliments of Tipsy Bartender. He makes some good drinks. This is a good one. It definitely will have you feeling good. View the video on how to make it.
There are recipes to follow for all of the cocktails. However, add ingredients to your liking. You may want to taste the liquor so of course you will add more. I do recommend that you try recipes step by step. Once you taste it, add or subtract as you please.
