Sangria with cognac really sneaks up on you with the alcohol content. It tastes fruity, a little sweet, and pretty innocent – then BAM you’re wondering when walking became so precarious, and ditching your sexy party heels for some mismatched socks. Just me….? This is a sangria of the sneakily-strong variety, and perfect for sharing with friends.
We usually double this recipe because wine is pretty popular ’round these parts (my apartment), and the pitcher is drained quickly when we have guests. It tastes great with everything, but pairs spectacularly with Spanish style food and anything grilled.
