Last week, I was invited by the good people at Hennessy to have dinner with Cyrille Gautier Auriol, the Ambassador for The House Of Hennessy. Cyrille was in Chicago to host a paired dinner with quality cognacs from Hennessy and yummy food from Nellcote. Some of Chicago’s top Influencers and Tastemakers came together for what was sure to be a fun-filled night, topped off with a live performance by the band.
When, I arrived at Nellcote, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I knew it included a night of Hennessy Cocktails and good food! I’ve been known to enjoy a cocktail but I’ve often found myself intimidated by Hennessy! I think in my mind, I’ve always felt like it was too rough for my soul! This dinner was the perfect opportunity for me to get up close and personal with the versatility of Hennessy; to my surprise I discovered several Hennessy Cocktails that I love!
So for all my girl readers who think you can’t drink Hennessy, I discovered several cocktails that includes Hennessy that you will love! Stay tuned!
Everything at the dinner was so classy, yet fun! The tables were adorn with Hennessy cards and bracelets. Each place setting gave guests details about the cognac we were drinking from the age to the aroma! It was truly an educational experience for me.
The Hennessy was paired with this sweet chocolate dessert, seriously, the night couldn’t get any better!All in all this dinner made for a great night! Not only did I enjoy the company of those there, I got over my Hennessy intimidation! I will be posting my favorite Hennessy Cocktail Recipes in the Cocktailin Section of the blog soon!

Thanks Hennessy for the invite, I had an excellent time!
