Whether you are drinking it as a full cocktail or a shot, it's incredible! I've had this before, and the color definitely makes this drink deceiving! While the Hpnotiq (the blue) is not necessarily a potent sipper, it makes the color of the drink, and it does add a lot of kick to the already strong Hennessey.
If you can't take the strength of this simple drink, then add a dash of pineapple juice to the mix. Guaranteed, you'll feel like the Incredible Hulk after you drink it! Although the popularity has died down for the drink particularly the Hpnotiq. You'll still catch some people making and drinking it. Try it out! I had this a few years back on Tigerfest. Crazy! Enjoy
Check out a brief history of how the drink was born! Very interesting stuff! Diddy actually was the one that coined the term or at least made it VERY popular in those days!
