Oh So Classic Cocktails Selected by Hennessy – The V.S.O.P Privilège Old Fashioned Cocktail

Hennessy perpetuates the “Oh So Classic Cocktails” collection with the first recorded definition of the cocktail in history – “a stimulating liquor, sugar, water and bitters” – that would become the Old Fashioned, in 1881, in Louisville Kentucky in honour of a mixologist who then brought to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar in New York City. The cognac’s warmth and spices coupled with a dash of bitters and syrup, blend together perfectly. The orange garnish is mere fashion.

● 2 ½ parts Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège
● 1 part Simple Syrup
● 2 dashes of Bitters

Method: Garnish with an Orange twist poured into an old fashioned glass to be enjoyed.
