The Hennessy brand needs no introduction.
From Kanye West to luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, Hennessy has found its way into our lives one way or another. However, no matter what the company’s accomplishments, us drinking enthusiasts know it as the best cognac there is out there.
Whether you’ve had a particularly trying day or a horrendously difficult week, there’s nothing like stretching out on a lounger (or sofa) and sipping your cognac as you imagine brighter days ahead.
That’s not the only thing a Hennessy is good for, though. You can drink it to celebrate so many occasions, that you’re likely to run out of fingers. For instance, your favorite holiday or a party you’ve thrown for all your best pals.
Speaking of parties and pals, if you’re looking for a new and exciting take on a Henny, then read on to discover the best Strawberry Henny Drink Recipe ever.
In the unlikely event (it truly would be shocking) that you don’t find the first recipe to your liking, try the Strawberry Henny Island Recipe instead, to really liven things up.
A Helpful Tip Before We Begin
The star of both our Henny recipes is the Hennessy cognac. If you’re a regular drinker of the brand, then you probably know all there is to it.
But if you’re new to it, then here’s a little something for you to keep in mind. The Hennessy bottles generally have alphabets like V.S. or X.O., to refer to the age of the drink.
For these Henny recipes, you want to avoid going for the more expensive options and stick to the Hennessy V.S Cognac that generally costs somewhere between $38 to $42 per bottle.
Go easy on your wallet if you plan on making a big batch of the recipe.
Your happy hour awaits, so without losing more time, let’s get to it!
