The color of this delicious sangria may be dark and moody but its flavor is bright and crisp. Melon liquor and citrus agave add a fruity pop to pinot noir, and cognac gives the cocktail a nice depth. This recipe is from Yard House in Orlando, Florida, and was originally published in the Orlando Sentinel.
