Who Says You Cannot Enjoy the Fruits and A Little Chill?
Hennessy is a complex flavor in and of itself. It is similar to a cognac, which some people do enjoy. It has hints of fruit and nuts, caramel or even a little chocolate, vanilla, honey, and even a slightly damp, oak wood taste. Also, it does have a peppery note that is mellowed by some cinnamon. It is also a flavor that is said to linger with notes of cinnamon and vanilla.
With all the earthy, fruity flavors that come together in it, it does not surprise us that one of the most popular ways to enjoy it is through making strawberry Hennessy mixed drinks. This adds more of the flavors that we love.
However, it goes well beyond adding strawberries. There are several variations of this drink. You can add other fruit flavors, or you can enjoy it nicely chilled or frozen. To help you out, we have searched for all the wonderful ways you can learn to make Strawberry Hennessy.
The Basic Strawberry Hennessy
To get started with this delightful drink, you will need:
- 1 pint of fresh strawberries (hulled)
- 1/4-cup water
- 1/4-cup sugar
- 1/2-cup lime juice
- 2-tablespoons Hennessy
- 2-tablespoons Grand Marnier
To make, you will then need to blend the strawberries, water, and sugar in a blender until they are smooth. Strain it into a measuring cup to remove any seeds. Put ice into your glass, pour the strawberry mixture into it.
Put the lime juice, Hennessy, and Grand Marnier in the blender and again, mix until smooth. Pour it over your ice and strawberry. Garnish your glass with lime and strawberries.
Variations: You can make a syrup using sugar, strawberries, and water. You can also use strawberry daiquiri mix if you want to try and avoid the blender. You may choose to freeze your glass or add crushed ice to your mix as well.
