Hennessy is the world's largest cognac producer. The company was founded in 1765 by Richard Hennessy, and the cognac now sells worldwide. You can drink Hennessy cognac straight or mixed. The Hennessy brand recommends mixing the cognac with sweet, fruity flavors such as citrus, apple, berry and ginger. You can keep the cocktails simple by adding a single juice, or you can mix more elaborate drinks by adding liqueurs, fruit and soda.
