Most of us know red sangria — with fruit a-bobbing in the pitcher — all too well.
Reál Sangria is now offering a pre-mixed white sangria, a relatively obscure spin on the classic, which uses white wine instead of red to achieve a lighter, fruitier taste.
This white sangria is relatively simple, but quite refreshing. The picture on the label really tells the story: Reál Sangria White tastes like white wine, fresh grape juice, and a heavy splash of orange. The fruit salad approach of many other sangrias is absent here; instead you get a brisk and moderately sweet concoction (alcohol level is strangely noted on the label as “7% to 10%”) that works well with food (serve over ice) and goes down without much fuss. Not much complexity, to be sure, but with burgers and chips, maybe you don’t need it.
