Hennessy Black

Hello, tall, dark and handsome. From one of the most respected Cognac houses comes a new, highly mixable cognac created with the club-goer in mind. Lighter in color and just a touch softer than its big brother, Hennessy V.S., Black’s aromas of fruit and white flowers give way to citrus, honey, grapes and a freshness not usually found in cognac. Try it at XS’ Sunday Nightswim in one of three sangrias presented tableside by the pitcher: Hennessy Black white peach, red berry ($200 each) and Millionaire’s sangria, topped with Moët Ice Imperial Champagne ($250).

Mango Snow Ice with Boba at Tea Station

Despite its name change from Tea Planet, this is still a local favorite, offering a wide variety of tea and coffee drinks in the heart of Chinatown. Best saved for the warmest of days, the snow ice drinks come in an array of flavors and can be ordered either with or without boba (tapioca balls). If you’re a tropical fruit lover, try the mango flavor, and don’t skip on the boba. The gelatinous texture may take some getting used to, but they’re a fun surprise when they sneak up the straw. $6.22 for medium, 4355 Spring Mountain Road, 889-9989.
