Drink this red sangria from Bar Moro in Clayton
The red sangria at Bar Moro is not like other sangrias. Inspired by the restaurant’s wine and vermouth menus, it’s made with whichever Spanish red needs to be used up, vermouth and a sherry-like white wine. These ingredients’ strong, complex flavors add a fermented note that balances the sweetness from passion fruit puree and Spanish orange liqueur. The drink arrives in a glass lined with orange slices and filled to the brim with crushed ice; with the ruby backdrop, it’s as pretty as a stained-glass window. Garnished with fresh gooseberries, it’s the finest, most unique sangria we’ve ever had.
