Nouveau Sangaree Cocktail Recipe

Not to be confused with Sangria, which might be Spanish in origin. But who say you can’t put an international spin on it the classic and popular cocktail? That’s exactly what famous New York City bartender and author Jim Meehan does with the Nouveau Sangaree, a Sangria twist with French and New England elements. While still bright and cheering, the drink has a lovely autumnal quality to it. And, rather than making a whole pitcher’s worth, this recipe is for single servings.
