I had the distinct pleasure of attending Hennessy’s Discover Your Blend tasting at 809 Lounge (112 Dyckman Street) yesterday. Not only were we plied with copious amount of outstanding spirits but we were also treated to a thorough break down of the making of Hennessy’s latest lineup of innovative and inspired drinks. These are no mere cocktails but carefully crafted concoctions made with only the finest ingredients. Of the three drinks on the tasting menu, Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Privilege Tamarindo and the Hennessy Media Noche Martini, my absolute favorite was the latter as it was quite simply superb. Check out some of the ingredients in the Media Noche Martini, Hennessy V.S., Navan, caramel syrup, iced coffee, cocoa powder and chocolate shavings. That drink right there is a game changer.
Ably hosted by Laura Stlyez, with an assist from mixologist Abdel González, Hennessy’s Discover Your Blend tasting was a cool and classy affair. Much love to the folks at 809 Lounge for providing the delectable treats that kept materializing almost out of thin air at a regular clip throughout the night. Good people, good food, good vibes and Hennessy. Really, what more could you ask for? Discover your blend, I have.
