Author Notes: If you’re in the mood to learn “how to drink like Jay-Z and VIPs” then we have the drink for you! Just in time for the On The Run II tour, we’ve listed out how to make a specialty cocktail using the legendary rapper’s Cognac, D’USSE. D’USSE is a bold new expression of Cognac that dares the palate like never before. Born from the prestigious Chateau de Cognac, France, D’USSÉ blends over 200 years of tradition with the inspiration of a passionate Cellar Master who set out to create his own legacy. The result is a uniquely powerful, authentic Cognac that starts off with distinguished intensity and then gives way to a pleasantly smooth, balanced finish. The D’USSÉ Cognac range consists of VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) and XO (Extra Old) qualities.Staff Member
