Sangria in Calgary?

EpicureanActor Jul 8, 2010 12:39 AM

Hello all!

It's getting to that very brief time of year in Calgary where it is wonderfully warm! And for me, nothing suits warm weather better than a nice pitcher of sangria. Does anyone know of a restaurant here that serves a good sangria? Whenever I have had sangria in the past, I'm always in a different city, or I've made it myself!

    Now this is my kind of thread!

    I love the sangria (and the food) at the Coup/Meet. I vaguely remember enjoying it at El Sombrero as well, but their food is a bit disappointing.

      I can tell you where not to get it.. Laurier Lounge. I love that place, but the sangria is blah. I wouldnt' doubt if it was a mix. I didn't enjoy it at all.

            Very true, I have! It's always best to make it yourself I find because most places don't let it marinate, which makes sense because it wouldn't be very practical at a restaurant. But I have some friends in town that want to go out somewhere with good sangria.

          I've had decent Sangria at The Metropolitan Grill on 17th ave and also at Brava Bistro. Nice patios at both locations, could be worth a try?

            Vin Room has pitchers of Sangria (great patio!) and Taste does it by the glass (just opened their patio.)
