|History of Hennessy|
|While cognac brandy is exclusively produced in a region of France, the founder of Hennesy brandy was actually Irish, and had moved to France in the mid-eighteenth century from his homeland. |
His name, which would eventually become the namesake of this popular brandy, was Richard Hennesy. Years later, Richard Hennesy’s son Jacques (the French name equivalent of James), took the brand to a new level with his cunning business skills.
The brandy did not become truly popular, however, until it hit the American market during prohibition. It was sold as “medicine” by William Sheifflin in his family’s drug stores.
When prohibition ended, Sheifflin officially became a full fledged liquor distributor, who was so crucial to the brandy’s success that the Hennesy CEO eventually bought his distribution company, Schiefflin & Co.
|Recipe for the Hennessy Margarita|
1 ½ oz. tequila reposado
1 oz. Hennessy cognac
1 oz. Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
½ oz. lime juice
For the garnish: lime wedges
Instructions for the Hennessy Margarita
Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass.
Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
Place the tequila, Hennessy, Cointreau and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with 1 handful of ice cubes and shake until cold.
Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and serve.
