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).

John Simmons, chef and managing partner of Firefly, says this dish has been a top-seller since the local chain’s debut. “We take a gooey Medjool date, remove the pit and replace it with a smoked almond, then wrap it in thick-cut apple wood-smoked bacon, lightly fry ’em and sauce them with a tangy red-wine sauce and top with blue-cheese crumbles. They’re addictive.” We second that. $4, 9560 W. Sahara Ave., 834-3814; 3900 Paradise Road, 369-3971.
