Sangria: A Reason to Celebrate

August 6, 2014 -

Happy Wine Wednesday! At Carrabba’s, we love to celebrate life’s moments, whether big or small, so why not celebrate the middle of the week with $10 off bottles of wine and $5 sangrias*?

Sangria is naturally a celebratory drink for family and friend gatherings. The sweetness of the fresh fruits combined with the complexity of the wine brings out a pleasant, unique taste that appeals to just about everyone. At Carrabba’s, we use lush fruits like strawberries, blackberries and fresh citrus to further infuse those flavors. And when it comes to the wine, there are all kinds of options. For our red and blackberry sangrias, we use our customized house wine called Terra Mare Montepulciano.

To put a little twist on the traditional taste, we’ve taken it a step further with a recent creation – our new Sparkling Sangrias, which come with a splash of Bocelli Prosecco. The twist on this drink is in the carbonization, which is a great palette cleanser that allows you to enjoy your meal bite by bite. And, we all know everything is more fun with bubbles.

Now, once you choose between classic or sparkling and then red, blackberry or peach, you’ll probably wonder what dish will go best with your sangria.  I’d recommend Cozze in Bianco for any of them as it’s perfect for sharing with friends and family, and the sangrias compliment well with the lemon butter sauce. When it all comes down to it though, there is no wrong or right when it comes to food and wine pairings. Remember to just have fun with it, and let your taste buds lead the way.

Salute!
