Sangre de Toro Sangria

» view more featured recipes

This libation became the rage at the Columbia in the 1960s. The twenty-first-century version is the best. The use of Torres brandy elevates this drink to extravagance. Miguel Torres is rightfully proud of his fine brandy. When he first heard the Columbia was using it in sangria, he was not especially
pleased. But when he discovered that the customers consumed 150 cases every month, he was delighted. Who can argue with success?
