Drinks | Wine in Good TASTE notes: Lolea No 1 Red Sangria


On the March 26, 2018 Eats + Drinks with Patrick segment of Coast Live, this was our featured Wine in Good TASTE.

Here’s some information to get you started.


+ Lolea No 1 Red Sangria

+ Lolea [LINK]

+ Spain


+ Based on traditional Spanish sangrias

+ Red wine infused with fruit juices

+ Light, bright, slight effervescence


Sangrias are wonderful any time of day, but they seem to make an appearance at brunch and in the afternoon when the party moves to the porch. Try this small bite as a starter at brunch or for an outdoor soiree: Raisin Toast with Honey Cream Cheese and Everything Bagel Spice; the recipe is HERE [LINK]


In our segment, we made a quick, delicious sangria by adding a handful of frozen fruit to a wine glass, pouring in one ounce of chilled Nektar Liqueur [LINK] and topping with Lolea No 1 Red Sangria, chilled. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and serve. Yields 1 cocktail.
