Sangria just calls out for experimentation, and there’s no reason to feel tethered to a ho-hum mix of wine and fruit. In this fruity- but-bitter rendition, Dorothy Elizabeth of Straylight in New York brings out the juicy flavors of Sauvignon Blanc by adding fresh grapefruit juice and citrusy Aperol, bracing Campari, and rich Italian vermouth.
Luckily, moonshine isn’t overpowering when you bake with it, and I wanted to offer up some kind of hooch cake as a Virginia treat. Its vanilla-like flavor pairs well with chocolate, and the orange zest and nutmeg complement both.
For this hearty breakfast pie, we start by crumbling up leftover Rise and Shine Biscuits and placing them in the bottom of a piecrust with big chunks of sausage and hearty bits of smoked bacon.
This sticky spread is the perfect condiment for breakfast sandwiches, daubed on a biscuit straight out of the oven, or brushed on a pork roast or grilled chicken.
