Summertime is but a fleeting treasure to be experienced every year. Nevertheless, the people over at Hennessy have devised a flavorful plan to allow its consumers to always savor its ambiance with a few new concoctions with their product as the base ingredient.

Actors Lance Gross and Amber Riley (of Glee fame) joined the prestigious brand on the rooftop of the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, yesterday June 18 for a private engagement that featured Hennessy Brand Ambassador and Master Mixologist, Jordan Bushell’s custom recipes being served to guests.

The four drinks included Blood Orange Bitters, Lumiere, Hennessy Sweet Punch and party favorite, The Record Breaker. Hennessy West Coast Marketing Manager Thuy-Anh J. Nguyen, dressed to snap necks, also greeted guests warmly as they entered the poolside area.

Hip-Hop luminaries BJ The Chicago, Syd tha Kid & The Internet and Thurz all trickled after one another as chef Jose Andres of Tres Restaurant kept the hors d’oeuvre prepped and DJ Sean G took it back to the days of Aaliyah and 90s classics one good time.
