The Daybreaker Wine Cocktail

When the juiciness of sangria meets the sparkle of a spritz.

This wine cocktail from P6 in the LINE Austin hotel combines the juiciness of sangria with the sparkle of a spritz. “The Daybreaker sits between the two,” says the hotel’s former beverage director, Brian Floyd. “I love lengthening a cocktail with a wine, and we chose a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its bright and lovely citric notes—specifically grapefruit.”

  • ½ oz. gin
  • 2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2½ oz. Sauvignon Blanc
