Good things tend to come in threes. It’s a phrase we’ve all heard a superstitious friend say, or you know, maybe we’ve been the superstitious friend to say it. But now it’s just a fact that three is the perfect number for creating an excellent cocktail at home. Hennessy taught us why.
The Hennessy V.S.O.P Rule of Three is simple: You only need Cognac and two more ingredients to create a refreshing drink. That means during your own personal cocktail hour, you can spend more time relaxing and less time laboring over complicated drink recipes. Keep a bottle of Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège ready, and you’re well on your way to an incredible drink — like a modern take on the Negroni, made with Cognac instead of the typical gin.
Although Cognac formerly had a reputation as something you’d save to sip neat (and that still works), it’s now a cult favorite for taking drinks to the next level. V.S.O.P Cognac is full-bodied, with hints of fresh fruits, vanilla, and spices. It’s distinctive yet won’t overpower your drinks. So the next time you’re in the mood for a cocktail, follow the Rule of Three and try one of these recipes. Besides the updated Negroni, there’s a refreshing buck, a sweet sidecar, and a bubbly French 75. Cheers to extraordinary cocktails — and to recipes that taste more complicated than they are.
