It’s springtime, the sun’s coming out, and I’m about to become your favourite internet-writer-person. Let me introduce you to two new Monnet Cognac cocktails that’ll make your taste buds do the happy dance (they don’t call Cognac “sunshine in a glass” for nothin’).

Monnet may have only launched here in Aus a couple of months ago but it’s been around for a looooong time. It’s one of the most historical signatures of the Cognac region (that’s in France) and has been around since 1838!

Here are two new enticing ways to freshen up your Spring!
