In almost as short supply (outside of southwest France) as absinthe, pineau is made from a blend of slightly fermented grape juice and the eau de vie of cognac.
Cocktail in a bottle. You’ve seen them lingering on the store shelves. Overly sweet Pina Coladas stand next to sour Margaritas, all pre-packaged and ready to disappoint.
