Hennessy King of Cognac

Hennessy King of Cognac


Hennessy is one of the oldest and most famous manufacturers of cognac, a type of French distilled wine, or brandy. The company was born when the Irishman Richard Hennessy[1], who had been a mercenary for the French king, was compensated with land in the town of Cognac in France in 1765 and started a trading business, initially sending liquor back to Irish friends and relatives. His son, James Hennessy, expanded the business into the brandy production with which the town is now synonymous. The business was renamed James (or Jacques) Hennessy and Co, a name the company retains today. The company has been managed by successive generations of Hennessys (now in the eighth generation). Ownership has changed over the years, however. In 1971 Hennessy merged with Moët et Chandon. In 1987 the drinks group then merged with fashion house Louis Vuitton to create what is now the world’s largest luxury goods business: LVMH.
Hennessy currently sells about three million cases of cognac each year. Recent innovations include trying to broaden the appeal of the drink beyond its traditional base of older drinkers, by introducing new products such as "Pure White" and "Fine de Cognac" and marketing them accordingly. Cocktail recipes have also been popularized, such as combining Hennessy with Red Bull energy drink to form Crunk Juice, a cocktail popularized by crunk-artists Lil Jon, the Eastside Boyz, and the Ying Yang Twins. A drink called Sin, made popular by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, includes equal proportions of Hennessy and gin. Rappers Xzibit, DMX, 2Pac, Nas, 50 Cent, Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Kid N’ Play, P.Diddy, Kanye West and Kano also frequently talk of drinking straight Hennessy in their lyrics, as does the group Digital Underground in its song "The Humpty Dance". Mac Dre is known for coining the popular term in relation to Hennessy, as ‘Heem’. In the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Bond, rescued by a St. Bernard in Switzerland, curtly dismisses the dog and tells him to bring Five Star Hennessy. It is also commonly mixed with Hpnotiq to form a popular drink called Incredible Hulk.

VW Beetle…Blue Hawaiian

VW Beetle...Blue Hawaiian

Those who know me well know that that I like cars and tiki culture. So it only makes sense that I combine the two in the form of a convertible surfin’ woody VW Bug posed next to a tiki and a palm tree. When not surfing the perfect wave, we can enjoy a picnic lunch stored in the trunk. This cute little beetle is called Blue Hawaiian and was built for the Love For The Bug challenge over at LUGNuts. Now, here is a recipe for the cocktail invented in 1957 of the same name. Enjoy.


3/4 oz. Light Rum
3/4 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
3 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix


Combine all ingredients and mix well. If using ice, mix the ingredients in a blender. Serve in a tall glass. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry.

Sunday Bloody Mary

Sunday Bloody Mary

I’m always trying something new…Now I’m working on "MY" perfect bloody mary. I never realized how complex of a drink it really is. I’ve made quite a few and still have not made one that I think is perfect…But I digress. The real point to this images is that I was playing around with a few changes in angle and framing. One of my favorites from the "Sunday Bloody Mary" shoot via

Sex on the Beach, anyone?

Sex on the Beach, anyone?

Playing the Tipsy Tuesday Game…provide a recipe of your favorite drink. Now, this is no longer my favorite drink by any stretch…I don’t drink vodka or peach schnapps. 🙂 BUT… I still love the name of the drink, and the coctails pictured above reminded me a little of what this drink looks like. And besides, how could I not think of this drink with the fantastic Tipsy shot Matt posted today? 🙂

One of the most popular cocktails, a Sex on the Beach is a delicious fruity drink that almost anyone will like. It’s a great tropical highball that is wonderful on hot summer nights or afternoons at the beach. Beginning bartenders should place Sex on the Beach on their list of drinks to know.
•1 1/2 oz vodka
•3/4 oz peach schnapps
•1/2 oz creme de cassis
•2 oz orange juice
•2 oz cranberry juice
•orange slice for garnish
•maraschino cherry for garnish
