"It's a privilege for Hennessy just to pick me out and choose me for all the things that I do in the community," said Melo, who was being recognized for his charitable work with the Carmelo Anthony Foundation. "I really don't do it to be recognized. I do it from my heart."

In addition to the award, Melo was also honored with a signature cocktail, the Hennessy Raspberry Sidecar, which contains:

1.5 oz. Hennessy Privilège Cognac
1 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. raspberry puree
0.5 oz. fresh lemon juice
