Sangria — the Spanish drink composed of wine, fruit juice, brandy, and sparkling water with chunks of fresh fruit — is a summer staple due to its light and fruity attributes. But what makes one recipe better than the other? It's time to introduce your palate to the many varieties of this delicious drink, and uncover the secret recipes behind high-quality sangria (don't worry, we'll share our tricks-of-the-trade so you can replicate the magic at home).
Join New York Adventure Club as we taste and learn our way through four different sangrias, all at the bar of a private club in Midtown East.
Led by Amy Karasavas, a certified sommelier, our unique experience will include:
- An overview of sangria, from its start in Spain to its many modern iterations
- A discussion of which wines work best for sangria and how to make your own recipes at home
- A tasting of four sangria varietals including white, red, rosé sangria — plus, we'll taste one made exclusively for New York Adventure Club
- A chance to mingle with other adventurers who enjoy sangria as much as you do
Amy has traveled the world studying different styles of wine, and is ready to answer any and all questions about this storied refreshment!
Stick around afterward to play some pool in the game room and order more drinks at the private bar, which will stay open until 11:00pm!
See you there!
