Punch drunk

Today’s drink is from Jerry Thomas’s 1862 book, How to Mix Drinks, by way of the Bartender’s Coice app.  This tastes just like a slightly souped up sangria (by the way, if you’re not putting cognac in your sangria, you’re missing out). I wish I had a pitcher of this to enjoy outside with our brand new patio set.  Summer and sangria truly are the best of friends.
