Whenever I head to a summer soiree, I always bring my favorite warm-weather staple: Sangria. There have been so many times, though, where I’ve made it and one ingredient overpowers another and the fruit becomes just a garnish rather than a prime part of the cocktail. Nick Accardo, head mixologist at W Scottsdale in Arizona, has crafted no-fail sangria and margarita recipes for summer — no blender and no sweet/sour mix needed.
