Cocktails at Home: French Manhattan
When it comes to cocktail icons, the Manhattan, thought to date back as far as the 1800s, is right at the top of our list. And how better to switch up this timeless whisky cocktail than with the world’s most popular cognac, Hennessy? Enjoy the fruity intensity the French spirit brings this subtly bitter, herbal all-American drink. And for that hint of sweetness, don’t forget the cherry on top!
