For me, the best drink to have on those hot summer days or nights is a light, sweet and chilled glass of Spanish sangria. No need to head to Europe or slave away trying to mix all the needed ingredients, a pitcher of sweet sangria is at your fingertips and close to home…
Sol y Sombra
Aaron May’s Sol y Sombra in Scottsdale’s DC Ranch was created based off of the distinct authenticity of Catalonia and the vibrant energy of Barcelona. It’s no secret that Sol y Sombra is worldly chic and one of Arizona Foothills’ favorites. The food is tapas-style and traditional sangria is served by the glass or in pitchers. Choose from either Garnacha Tinto de Valenica (red) or Malvasia Blanco de Valencia (white). Salud!
Sangria Luxe Lounge
Drawing its name from its signature drink, Sangria Luxe Lounge is a happening nightspot where the Latin drinks are flowing and the Latin dancing boosts the swanky energy. Located in the Citadelle Shopping Plaza in Glendale, Sangria Luxe Lounge infuses an urban chic atmosphere. Riesling wine, Bacardi Grand Watermelon, 42 Below Kiwi, Midori Melon and simple syrup are added to the muddled fresh Watermelon and Kiwi will give you a splash of amazing flavor.
