Farnoush Deylamian, bar director of Aziza restaurant (now closed) 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”.

  2. 2Add more ice until the shaker is three-quarters full. Add the brandy, Cointreau, gin, and simple syrup. Shake well until chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain the mixture into a large wineglass and top with the Lambrusco. Mix thoroughly with a bar spoon and serve.
