Jay-Z is basically the biggest ambassador for the cognac brand D'USSE. So, it totally makes sense that these drink recipes are D'USSE based.

As Jay-Z & Beyoncé's OTII Tour approached kick-off, the rapper sought out mixologist, Colin Asare-Appiah, to create an exclusive cocktail menu for the D'USSE VIP Lounge, which is set up backstage at every show.

Asare-Appiah stopped by 6abc when the tour hit Philly last week and shared the exclusive recipes. You're sure to fall Drunk in Love with them.
