A$AP Ferg & Hennessy Release “Hennessy Uptown” Cocktail Kit
A$AP Ferg has made no secret of his love of cognac.
And the Harlem rapper and visual artist has taken his passion a step further with a partnership with Hennessy to drop a cocktail kit inspired by his passion for music, art and of course, cognac.
The “Hennessy Uptown Inspired by A$AP Ferg Cocktail Kit” ($78), which goes on sale Jan. 17, includes everything you’d need to make eight “Hennessy Uptown” cocktails – including a bottle of Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege.
The first 100 customers will also receive a vinyl record of the Trap Lord’s new single, “Family.”
To make the “Hennessy Uptown” at home, combine the following ingredients in a shaker over ice until chilled: 1.5 oz. Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège, .25 oz. cinnamon syrup, 3 oz. hibiscus tea and three dashes of angostura bitters. Then strain over ice into a Collins glass and garnish with a lemon wheel, a pinch of chipotle powder and a float of crème de cassis.
