Simple Summer Sangria in a Bottle?!
Everyone loves sangria! It’s the perfect summer drink over ice; so fruity and refreshing. There’s a reason why I have two sangria recipes on my blog: a classic white and one for the holidays. I was surprised recently when I tasted this bottled Sangria at an event. It was so good that I brought some home with me and have been drinking it ever since.
Let me introduce you to Lolea! Far better than any other pre-made sangria. Usually, those bottled drinks are far too sweet, and have an unpleasant aftertaste. But Lolea starts with quality wine and the right blend of fruits to give you a premium drink. You can simply pour and serve over ice, or add some fruit, like I did with my cake pairing.
A Match Made in the Mediterranean
I wanted to create a dessert that would work with the flavors of this bright and fruity sangria. And I love a good olive oil cake! The one that we sold at my retail shop on 18th Street was one of my best sellers.
The olive oil keeps the cake moist while the citrus from the lemon compliments the sweet and earthy flavors of the almonds. Top it off with a full glass of this bubbly white sangria and you’ll find that you’re transported to paradise!
