    It's hot out there, people, and it's about time that you treated yourself to a cool-down cocktail. Luckily for us, we just learned about three brand new summer signature drinks with the help of Hennessy V.S. 

    Jordan Bushell, Brand Ambassador for the popular cognac beverage, broke down the motto of Hennessy and how he applies it to his everyday life. "The mantra for the brand is ‘Never Stop. Never Settle,' which represents the drive to succeed. You never stop when you're fulfilling your dreams and you're never settlingyou're always striving for the best," he said. With a slogan like that it's easy to see why the company has been in business for over 250 years!
