Who knew Henny could be so...flirty?

Hennessy has always had a very familiar place in the Black community. But nowadays, the cognac is shedding it's harsh (read: hood) reputation, and becoming the perfect mixer for a fun, flirty, fruity cocktail. Case in point: The Hennessy Berry.

Mixed with the perfect mix of lime juice, raspberry juice, and ginger ale; this drink is berry good (oooh but, that joke was very bad).

The Hennessy Berry Serves 1 glass, adapted from HENNESSY-Berry

1 1/2 ounces HENNESSY
6 mint leaves
1 spoon brown sugar
1/2 ounce raspberry juice
4 slices of raspberry
1/4 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce ginger ale
