Here is an interesting video with mixologist Skyy John and playmate Patrice Hollis, not only because they present the Incredible Hulk cocktail but quickly talk about why black people drink cognac, why black people love the french brandy: Patrice refers to a tradition.

Skyy explains how to fill a cognac snifter and how to mix a green cognac cocktail, The Incredible Hulk.

Skyy: “Why the hell do black people love Hennessy so much?”

Hollis: “I don’t know, maybe because it’s dark? I love dark liquor, Hennessy is one of my favourites.”

Skyy: “Courvoisier, the Remy, the cognacs? What’s up with that, could you explain that to me?”

Hollis: “You know, it’s just a cultural thing I think. It’s something you grow up with, that’s what I grew up on. My grandpa had a glass of Hennessy and a glass of coke, he didn’t mix it together though.”
