As the hot weather rolls in, it’s time to shake up one of these refreshing summer cocktails to make any hour happier. Hennessy VS Cognac recently launched its Made for More campaign, exploring the infinite versatility of this exquisite cognac. Starring Damson Idris and Teyana Taylor, the campaign shows how any drink or occasion becomes “more”’” with Hennessy. It’s time to shake up perceptions and showcase the mixability of the cognac, which is often sipped neat.  

One unique combination is the Hennessy Berry Mojito, which features fresh limes, berries, mint and simple syrup. This refreshing twist on a classic cocktail is sure to impress your friends with its unique take, making it perfect for summer gatherings:

40 ml Hennessy V.S.
15 ml fresh lime juice

While we love a good sipping tequila, there’s something to be said for pairing this classic agave-based spirit with simple ingredients to make a showstopping drink. Tequila is incredibly versatile and can shape-shift into the perfect boozy base for sweet and savory alike. Volcan De Mi Tierra Blanco blends the herbal, citrus, and spicy notes indicative of the lowlands with fruity notes like cherry and pear from the highlands. Its taste combines sweet agave notes with delicate hints of grapefruit and a touch of black pepper spice, resulting in a well-balanced finish. 

With its crisp flavors from the heart of agave, Volcan De Mi Tierra Blanco is perfect for crafting those zesty and invigorating summer drinks that will keep you cool and refreshed. One standout recipe is the La Valoma, a refreshing combination of Volcan Blanco tequila, lime, agave syrup, grapefruit juice and a pinch of salt, topped with soda water for a touch of fizz. Perfect for those hot summer days.

2 oz Volcan Tequila Blanco
3/4 oz lime
3/4 oz agave syrup

Pour ingredients into a glass with ice and stir gently. Strain into a new glass with a large ice cube and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
