At Cut 132 in Columbus, Ohio, Michael Echeveste, the beverage director of Thompson Hospitality, developed this mellow sangria, which he makes by the pitcher.
He combines 16 ounces of fruit-forward red wine with an ounce each of rum, triple sec, lime juice, orange juice, and pineapple juice, plus two ounces of pomegranate juice. He tops it with club soda, pours it into four wine glasses filed with ice and garnishes it with half a strawberry and a Martha Stewart CBD gummy.
Echeveste said the drink is “not too sweet, but also not too serious.”
“Garnishing the drink with Martha’s citrus flavored CBD gummy brings out the tropical flavors of the sangria while enhancing the relax vibe,” he added. “You can and should drink two, and might even feel better in the morning from it. It’s fun, but won’t put you behind bars.”
