Served in a voluminous 24 oz. Bordeaux wine glass, and with garnishes that really pop, this rare white sangria is casual enough for summertime pool-side quaffing but also elegant enough to suit any celebration table.
The number-one selling signature cocktail at Beso is your opportunity to test your mixology prowess. Beso’s gatekeepers would not let the exact proportions of their sangria out, though they did give us the basics. You’ll simply have to mix, taste and repeat. Shall we twist your arm?
