Hennessy cocktail with a Turkey Day theme

With Thanksgiving a little more than a week away, Hennessy V.S has an amazingly delicious cocktail recipe for the occasion.

In 1765, Richard Hennessy, a retired Irish Brigade captain in the service of King Louis XV, established his own Maison (estate) in Cognac, France. From that day on, the reputation and distribution of Hennessy cognacs has extended continuously—first to Paris and the royal court, then to England, to Russia, and faraway lands. Today, nearly 250 years later, Hennessy is enjoyed on every continent.

Holiday “Sauce”
1.5 oz Hennessy V.S
.5 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
Heaping tablespoon of cranberry sauce (the kind  you would have with turkey)
1 dash of Fee Brothers cranberry bitters (optional)
Garnish with an orange twist and cinnamon sugar rim
Glass: martini

Method: Add all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake until well chilled. Take the martin glass and rub the rim with a fresh cut lemon wedge and dip the rim in a plate of cinnamon sugar (1 part cinnamon to 1 part white sugar). Strain the cocktail into the rimmed glass and garnish with an orange twist.
