The Story Behind The Hennessy Sangria
As a lover of wine, sangria is undoubtedly one of my favorite cocktails during the summer. Whether it's made super sweet or super strong, sangria is always full of great flavors.
I first fell in love with sangria while studying abroad in Spain six years ago, and I’ve always wanted to create my own special blend. While I typically prefer using red wine over white, sangria is a cool, refreshing drink that can be customized to fit your own unique taste.
In addition to my wine obsession, I also appreciate cognac -- specifically Hennessy V.S. Taken straight up, on the rocks or with a splash of ginger ale, Hennessy has a full flavor that I simply can’t resist, no matter what the occasion.
So, with the days of summer dwindling down swiftly, why not combine two of my favorite tastes to create a special treat? Sangria is typically made with rum or brandy, but I thought this would be a great opportunity to put my spin on the traditional recipe.
