Serve The Commissary's Sangria Blanco at Your Next Party

Sangria season is upon us, people. And the Presidio's Spanish-inflected restaurant by Traci Des Jardins, The Commissary, boasts two house options—a white and a red that, after much R&D, could be the city's most authentic, delicious options. "I wanted to always have a spice component for the rojo and an herb ‎component for the blanco," says GM and bar manager Malcolm Brownson, the latter of which features the essence of summery citrus with verbena-infused brightness. "The fact that Traci has a verbena tree in her back yard made this a very easy choice," adds Brownson. ¡Salud!
