SANGRIA AT SPRING GATE
When we opened in 2014, we knew we wanted a cool Summer drink and we knew it would be a (white) Sangria. And so Thursday Sangria Happy Hours began, and continued into 2015. However, between our suppliers and our scaling, we knew we had to restart the Sangria project. And so we had no Sangria in 2016.....
In2016 in nSedona, Arizona we "sighted" a great Sangria, but continued our search through California until, finally, in the Spring of 2017, we came to the conclusion in our tasting panel that we had a red Sangria winner - even though we had been trying for a White Sangria!
OUR RED SANGRIA - BLACKBERRY KISSED
Our Sangria is a combination of two red grapes that grow well in Pennsylvania, apple brandy that is made in Pennsylvania, and raw blackberry juice. It is a unique combination for an "instant sangria" if you want - over ice or otherwise. Adding more brandy, seltzer or a piece of fruit only makes it better.
So far, this Red Sangria has only been on tap at Spring Gate and ABC Brewery, but on July 22nd it will be released in a 750ml bottle available at Spring Gate.
On tap, we pour it by the glass or the carafe over ice with a garnish.
