MINNEAPOLIS -- It's time to celebrate summer with a splash of something delicious. Writer, photographer and cocktail enthusiast Joy Estelle Summers joined us today to spill what she knows about this summer's coolest beverage: Sangria!
Before mixing up her own concoction, Summers shared some Twin Cities spots pouring special sangrias.
Hola Arepa - white wine sangria, wonderfully dry and crisp just begging to be paired with their yucca fries on their incredible, new patio.
Spill the Wine - sangria in Mason jars - perfect for brunch or long, summer evenings.
Saffron - refined, date night sangria from one of the best bartenders in the Twin Cities.
Joy's special sangria:
1 bottle of rose – something with a berry flavor profile
¼ cup limoncello
¼ tsp ground cardamom
¼ cup soda water
Mix limoncello and cardamom together. Add rose and limoncello mixture to a pitcher and stir. Add soda water. Serve over ice. Garnish with fresh raspberries, lemon twist and mint. Smack mint leaves before serving.
