Sangria. That pleasantly sweet, fruity combination of white wine, fresh fruit and/or juices and spirits like rum to bring it all together. There are a handful of spots around the city that do an outstanding sangria; you should head out to sample them before summer’s over!
Americana | 219 Broadway E | 206-328-4604
Sangria is a short term special offering at Americana, for a limited time. It’s a wonderful blend of white wine, peach puree, and Remy Martin VSOP cognac with freshly sliced peaches, green apples and green grapes. There’s no added sweetener, so this sangria is definitely a less-guilt treat.
Cactus | Multiple Locations
Although it’s not an official sangria, Cactus’ Peach Bellini Sparkling Margarita has some serious flavor and sangria-like qualities. This marg is swirled with peach purée and then topped with sparkling wine for a spritzy finish.
Elemental Pizza | 701 5th Avenue Suite 300 | 206-524-4930
Both the Columbia Center and Tacoma locations of Elemental Pizza offer a fantastic sangria… It’s a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from Coastal Vines, E&J Brandy and an infusion of fresh fruits and juices. Pair it with your pizza for a sweet and refreshing combination of flavors.
Japonessa | 1400 1st Avenue | 206-971-7979
Choose between red or white sangrias at Japonessa! They offer both, to compliment your sushi with a fruity libation. The Oishi Sangria starts with your choice of Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc, then the wine is mixed with Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum and Bacardi Mango Fusion, orgeat, and orange and lemon juices.
Peso's Kitchen & Lounge | 605 Queen Anne Avenue N | 206-283-9353
Peso’s has some pretty fantastic recipes for a red and white sangria, and both are available by the carafe or glass (with a great discount at Happy Hour!). The Spanish Pomegranate Sangria is a red beverage of Spanish table wine, brandy, Braeburn apples and pomegranate. Peso’s white sangria is crafted with white wine, brandy, sparkling cider, canela and d’Anjou pears.
