Hennessy & Crown Summer Cocktails

Seasonal cocktails are always a fun change up to your regular drink diet. You can disagree if you’d like but I think the best drinks are made solely for the summer. Today we have some wonderful cocktails from Heather B. You may recognize her from co-hosting Sway Universe on SiriusXM, but she’s also an amazing mixologist! I found some great Hennessy and Crown Royal creations of her’s that I’d like to share with you all.
