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.
Anthony’s Any Day Brunch Punch
When asked to create a cocktail suitable for brunch for our Food Schmooze® party celebrating breakfast, Anthony DeSerio invented a beautiful punch—that packs a punch. It’s a knock-out.

Grapefruit and Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake
Most citrusy pound cakes use just the zest and juice to flavor their crumb, but this citrus lover’s cake is particularly flavorful because it utilizes grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest, juice, and flesh. The bits of whole fruit in this beautiful bundt cake are folded into the cake and turn into little jammy pockets that, when baked, are just tart enough balance out the thick coating of sweet, zesty glaze.
