Hennessy Remixed

Not long ago I attend the media luncheon for the Hennessy Remixed Tour, featuring Lady Hennessy Toccara Jones and  Hennessy Master Mixologist Jordan Bushell at Park 52. I got a chance to try several Hennessy Cocktails as well as sample some great food from Park 52

Hennessy Remixed Cocktails from L to R: Hennessy Ginger, Hennessy Apple and Hennessy Berry!

Now I must admit, I have always thought of Hennessy as a man’s drink, but with these cocktails I must say I’m quite impress! My favorite one was Hennessy Apple! I’m glad Hennessy finally took the time to acknowledge us ladies…

After sampling the cocktails, I got a chance to speak with both Toccara and Jordan
