Hosted my 1st Hennessy Privilege Pairing

I had a wonderful time on this past Wednesday as I hosted my first Hennessy Privilege Pairing as the Hennessy Ambassador for Houston. I invited some of Houston's top influencers to join me and I truly appreciate everyone for attending. 

The evening started off with the guests receiving a Privilege Passport which granted them access to the experience. Hennessy Privilege Splash was the welcome drink, which was served inside the beautiful wine room of Brennan's of Houston restaurant. The Splash, which is similar to a Mojito and oh so yummy was garnished with mint leaves and left me wanting more. My guests than proceeded to taste 4 different styles of drinks created with Hennessy Privilege. The passport was stamped at each station which was paired with a food appetizer complementing the drink pallet.  Sweet, Sour, Bitter and Spicy. 

Spicy was my favorite...the recipe will be below :)
