The Hennessy Paloma: National Cognac Day

Did you know June 4th is National Cognac Day? Well you do now. We celebrate all holidays around here and especially alcoholidays that give us another excuse to drink. Traditionally Cognac is more of a warm weather spirit, so it was a bit surprising to find out its being celebrated in June, a Summer month we usually associate with tequila, rum, or even gin. But we’re all for it. And to show how versatile it can be, we’re sharing a recipe courtesy of Hennessy cognac that puts a cognac spin on a popular summer cocktail that traditionally uses Tequila, the Hennessy Paloma. Made with Hennessy VSOP, this easy to make cocktail is light and sparkling, with a refreshing touch of grapefruit. It’s the perfect sip for brunch, at-home gatherings or anytime.
