psst! — Tastes Like Summer

Hennessy serves up some refreshing summer cocktail recipes with its “Wild Rabbit” campaign, which has featured pop culture icons and cognac aficionados such as Martin Scorsese and Manny Pacquiao. This year, Hennessy is following multiplatinum recording artist Nas, who has 13 Grammy nominations and works as a philanthropist working with UNICEF in East Africa and with George Harrison’s charity, Month of Giving. Nas kicked off the summer with several private concerts, including a major bash in Bermuda Dunes. The bar featured the new cocktails to help chill the already cool crowd. If you missed it, don’t worry. Invite some friends to come tune into Nas’s Pandora station and enjoy one of these recipes.
