Pinewood Social Sangria

“Nashville summers are very hot,” says Matt Tocco, the beverage director at Nashville’s Pinewood Social. To combat the heat, he combined two warm weather cocktails into the ultimate weapon: frozen Sangria. A perfect poolside sipper, this Sangria blends fruity red wine with citrus juices, dry curaçao, Applejack, St-Germain and—something you don’t often see on Supercall—Sprite. It’s a frosty pink glassful of sweet heat-relief.
