This very light, smooth Cognac is Hennessy's blend for cocktails, and it is a great one for that purpose. It is also a great contrast to the other cocktail specific Cognac we carry here at K&L, the high proof Ferrand 1840 Formula 90 proof Cognac, which is much heavier. I need both for my bar! The original Manhattan was made with Cognac, not Bourbon, and the Hennessy Black is the perfect ingredient for this classic. Stir two ounces of Hennessy Black with two ounces of Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth and a dash of Regan's Orange Bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain and serve up. Enjoy!
