Sangria, a Drink of Life!

Posted on May 15, 2017

More than just a fruity cocktail, Sangria could easily be known as one of Spain's greatest cultural exports.


Did you know that the Spanish word for "bleeding" translates as "sangria"? The connection here is not of course that Sangria has blood in it, rather, it is that the rich, red colour of blood matches the vibrant hue of the Sangria drink. In many cultures blood was the symbol of life, of vitality, of a full experience and passion. This is what Sangria embodies!

With 9 flavours to choose from – Classic Red, White, Watermelon, Cherry Berry, Apple, Lychee, Coconut Rambutan, Tropical Coconut and Mojito – El Mesón's Sangria Selection will keep your thirst quenched and spirits high!
