Stockbridge Sangria from the Red Lion Inn

Rural Intelligence Food You don’t have to be staying at the historic Red Lion Inn to have cocktails beneath an umbrella table in its tranquil pebbled courtyard. The house drink of the summer is “Stockbridge Sangria,” which is the creation of The Red Lion Inn’s Sommelier, Dan Thomas, who likes to mix it in a giant Mason jar.

Stockbridge Sangria

1 oz Sweet Vermouth
1 oz Aperol Aperitivo
1 oz Lillet Blanc
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz White Rum
12 oz Dry Rose wine
48 oz Dry White wine (no oak high acid)
Chopped fruit (strawberries, apples, grapes, pears, cherries or whatever is in season)

Mix and let sit overnight.
Serve over ice with a splash of club soda and Sprite.
