Frugalista Fun at a Robert Glasper Hennessy Event

by frugalista on June 10, 2013

Robert GlasperHey Frugs. I recently checked out jazz pianist Robert Glasper for a set sponsored by Hennessy VS. So much fun. The “Robert Glasper Experiment” was like listening to a eclectic yet relaxing ride of rock, hip hop, funk and Zapp . I felt tre cool. The crowd was a nice young professional cocktail of journalists, record industry staffers and musicians, mingling in a loft. Robert’s done collaborations with Solange Knowles, Kanye West and The Roots. Because it was a Hennessy event, you know the alcohol was free flowing. Here’s my drink of choice for evening:

Hennessy V.S., sweet vermouth, Grand Marnier, Angostura bitters, brandied cranberries
The drink worked out fine and I nursed it the entire night. There was no need to order a second round. *hiccup* If you try it at home, please let me know how you like it.

Here’s a little bit of the set. Robert is on keys.

His earlier take on Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is Moving.

What are you sipping for the summer?
