Arctic Wine Cooler

Adapted from Session Cocktails by Drew Lazor and the Editors of PUNCH

Natasha David’s playful cooler is essentially an überprogressive sangria in slushie form. Using orange wine—a white produced in a manner similar to reds, with the grapes experiencing some skin contact—lends a punch of funkiness, while apricot liqueur suggests the chopped fruit typically found floating in a glass of sangria.
