Cocktail: Sangria

By Shanzi Chen Translated by Ann Lee

Bartender: Claire

Ingredients:
A
2 oz Gin, 1 oz Cointreau
1 Orange

B
750 cc Patarrota Sangria
5 oz Cabernet Sauvignon (Tapas' house wine)
1 oz Orange juice
350 cc Soda water
ice cubes

Directions: 1. Cut orange into slices and marinate in 'A' ingredients. Store at room temperature for more than 24 hours.
2. After 24 hours, add 'B' ingredients into 'A'. For less, shake evenly with a cocktail shaker. For more, use a glass cocktail bowl to mix ingredients, then stir evenly with soup spoon.

When you enter Tapas Bar, you will feel welcomed by the warm greetings and friendly service. Before you try a few of their authentic dishes, like the Paella, Spicy Prawns in Garlic and Olive Oil, and Fried Onion and Patatoes, you can enjoy a glass of the Spanish "sacred drink" Sangria, made by bartender Claire. The drink is "sacred" because it represents Christian theology. The orange slices marinating in gin symbolizes the baptism of Jesus. The red wine represents the blood of Jesus Christ and, since Sangria is a deep red wine color, the Spanish named it the "holy" drink. Sangria is also widely used by the Spanish as an aperitif and can be considered the best known drink from Spain. Since it is sweet, sour, and oh-so-smooth, Sangria goes well with any Spanish delicacy. Claire recommends sipping Sangria. Although it has an "innocent" taste, it is a sneaky drink that can make you tipsy.
