Yesterday Boquerias Jeff Deisel wrote in to tell us he had made up a batch of strawberry-lemonade sangria by macerating fresh greenmarket berries in sugar and blending in Txocholi (a Basque white wine), house-infused lemon Stoli, fresh-squeezed lemon, and triple sec. Get a $36 pitcher while the gettins good.
