Ingredients (9)

  • 5 large or 10 small ice cubes, plus more for shaking
  • 1/2 medium lemon, peeled and sliced into small cubes
  • 1/2 medium lime, peeled and sliced into small cubes
  • 1/2 medium orange, peeled and sliced into small cubes

Summary

Farnoush Deylamian, bar director of Aziza restaurant in San Francisco, uses bubbly Lambrusco to add a little sparkle to classic sangría. With a hit of gin, this cocktail is strong but remains balanced. Remember to be delicate when stirring it or you’ll kill the bubbles!

What to buy: For this sangría stick with a dry, or secco, Lambrusco. Avoid the sweet, or amabile, style. Try Ca Berti Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro “Robusco”.
