If you are hosting a party, it’s easy to set up a cocktail bar area for guests to serve themselves. Have a selection of wines, a few large batch cocktails and some simple ingredients for mixed drinks. Make sure you have plenty of ice.
What is Brandy?
Brandy is a spirit made by distilling wine and can be aged in wooden casks. The difference in Brandy and Cognac is that Cognac must come from the Cognac region in France and Brandy can be made anywhere in the world.
