RECIPE

White Wine Siesta

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

A brightly fruity take on a classic Siesta, this wine-based cocktail swaps in Pinot Grigio for the majority of the tequila, leaving just a half-ounce of the agave spirit in the mix for kick and zest. Made with fresh grapefruit juice and bracingly bittersweet Campari, it’s perfect at brunch or just before dinner. It’s incredibly easy-drinking but don’t worry, its low ABV means you can whip up a guilt-free second right after you finish your first. We used Charles Shaw Pinot Grigio from Trader Joe’s, but feel free to swap in any affordable, fruit-forward bottling.
